STANFORD, Calif. – Jordan Williamson wears a Fiesta Bowl cap most places he goes now to remind himself and show the world just how far he has come since the worst moment of his life.
Not that anybody needs a reminder anymore.
The Stanford kicker, who kept a low profile for months after he missed a field goal at the end of regulation and overtime in that 41-38 loss to Oklahoma State in January, will no longer be remember on this quant Silicon Valley campus for just his biggest failure. Williamson's winning 37-yard field goal in overtime at previously top-ranked Oregon last Saturday night highlighted his road to redemption, and he's using both experiences to help others overcome similar setbacks.
