Welcome to the 2023 FCS Jersey Countdown. Leading up to Week 0 games on Aug. 26, HERO Sports will name the best returning FCS player by jersey number, 99-0.
Because team rosters are updated at different times across the country and to keep things consistent, jersey numbers are based on last season’s rosters.
38: Abraham Williams, CB/KR (Jr.) — Weber State
Note: Jersey numbers are based on 2022 rosters. Williams is wearing No. 4 this fall.
Williams is a cornerback, but he’s so far made his name known as an elite returner.
Just a sophomore last fall, he was a consensus All-American kick returner and First Team All-Big Sky selection.
Williams set an FCS record with four 100-yard kickoff return touchdowns. He led the FCS in yards per kick return, averaging an incredible 37.4 yards (24 returns for 898 yards).
He scored on returns against Eastern Washington, Montana State, Sacramento State, and Northern Arizona.
Williams also added six tackles, two interceptions, three passes defended, and one fumble recovery on defense.
He’s a tremendous weapon for a Weber State squad that ranks tied at No. 11 in HERO Sports’ FCS Preseason Top 25.
