Jamaal Williams’s Early Life

Jamaal Malik Williams was born on April 3rd, 1995, in Rialto, California to Larry and Nicole Willaims. A big anime fan, Jamaal attended Summit High School in nearby Fontana in his early days.


It was in high school that he first got an affection for professional American Football, as he became a member of the Sky Hawks team. During his time there, he showed some promise, leveling as a three-star recruit who eventually chose to join Brigham Young University or BYU. That decision came in spite of an offer from Boise State.


While he did not play for most of the 2014 season due to a knee injury and redshirted through 2015, the rest of his years saw some solid production from the youngster.

After the termination of his contract with the Packers, he chose to sign a two-year contract with the Detroit Lions.


While his first year in Detroit led to remarkably similar numbers as in Green Bay, it was the 2022 season that truly saw Jamaal break out into a bonafide Rushing threat. Over the course of the season, his first playing all allotted games since his sophomore year, Williams led the league in rushing touchdowns, compiling 17 along with nearly doubling his career-long average of 500 yards, totaling 1,066.


On the back of his excellent year, he chose to sign a three-year contract with the New Orleans Saints.
