Derrick Williams is special

From the 'well duh' files, D.W. was named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week.

He totaled 133 yards on his three kickoff returns and added 33 rushing yards and 75 receiving yards for a career-high 241 all-purpose yards, the most by a Nittany Lion since 2002. Williams now has two kickoff return touchdowns this season to equal a school record set by Chuck Peters in 1940 and equaled by Curt Warner in 1980. Williams picks up his first career weekly accolade and the first for a PSU special teams player since 2006.

How about one more to set a school record? Is that asking too much? I didn't think so.
