  • Gazette: "UNI football's 2019 players of impact: DB Xavior Williams"

    "Mark Farley’s best defenses in his 17 years as Northern Iowa head coach have been at or near the top of the FCS in takeaways.

    Over the past two seasons defensive, back Xavior Williams leads UNI with eight interceptions. Williams was a freshman All-American (Hero Sports and Phil Steele) in 2017 after intercepting four passes and breaking up eight, and he followed up his breakout redshirt freshman season with another four interceptions last season while routinely being asked to cover the opponent’s best wide receiver.

    This spring the junior from Burlington approached Farley with a request to move to safety. It’s a move that he thinks could lead him to more takeaway opportunities."

    "Well, that escalated quickly."
