Andrew Maraniss on Departed Greatness, the Right Kind

Andrew Maraniss has captured the greatness and the humanity of David Williams. It is also very personal and moving. i wrote of David’s passing as soon as i learned of it Friday. i think Andrew’s story here in ESPN’s “Undefeated” website gives one a fuller idea of how wonderful this man was and how great his achievements were. He leaves a legacy, which i hope others will acknowledge and build on. i remain devastated at his family’s loss, Vanderbilt’s loss, college sports loss, the country’s loss, and my loss.

Thanks, Andrew.
