Heitmann, Williams Earn All-America Honors

Nov. 21, 2001

Senior offensive guard Eric Heitmann today was named First-Team All-America by Football News while free safety Tank Williams was chosen to the Second-Team.

Heitmann, from Katy, Texas, has played in all 43 games of his Stanford career and has started the last 32. The anchor of Stanford's offensive line, Heitmann becomes the first Cardinal offensive lineman to earn First-Team All-America honors since Bob Whitfield in 1991.

Williams, from Bay St. Louis, Miss., has proven himself to be one of the team's top playmakers on defense. He is second on the team with 59 total tackles, but he also has four interceptions, eight pass breakups, two fumble recoveries - one which he returned 25 yards for a touchdown - two forced fumbles, two quarterback sacks and two tackles for loss.
