Biography

The Chargers’ sixth-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Tourek Williams was in the running to start at strongside linebacker in 2015. Williams had a strong offseason, but in the Bolts’ 2015 preseason opener against Dallas, he suffered a broken foot. The Chargers were optimistic that Williams would be able to return during the season, but on Nov. 3 the team placed him on the season-ending “Reserve-Injured” list.

During his first two seasons, Williams was a contributor at both outside linebacker and on special teams. In 2014, he was fifth on the squad with 14 special teams stops. And as a rookie, Williams recorded his first NFL sack and forced fumble against Peyton Manning.

Williams underwent a rather drastic change in 2015, cutting his dreadlocks, which hadn’t been cut since he was in the third grade. Even though Williams played well his first two seasons, he felt like he needed to change his approach to the game, so besides revising his offseason training regimen, he decided it was also time for a new look.

Williams is a strong swimmer and a former lifeguard, who played water polo at Miami’s Norland High School. The water polo program had been dormant for some time before Williams and some of his football teammates joined the team as seniors and turned the program around, helping end a winless drought that had extended for 10 seasons prior to their joining.
