Sherman Williams, from Pritchard, AL, played Running Back at the University of Alabama and for the Dallas Cowboys. He won both a National Championship in college and a Super Bowl in NFL. While in the NFL, a series of bad choices led to Sherman being incarcerated for 15 years. While incarcerated, he renewed his relationship with Jesus and is now active in the same streets of Pritchard, AL sharing with youth how to not make the same choices and seek a relationship with Jesus.
He wrote his book, “Crimson Cowboy”, to share his life journey and to encourage others to not make similar choices.
