"The latest group of recruits includes Benjamin Williams, 23, a former University of South Florida running back, as well as several men who served in the military in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Williams said he hopes to work with the special weapons and tactics team and eventually become a major. And even though he's still toned from football, he said the physical training at the boot camp has been difficult. In just the first four days, two recruits dropped out.

"It's a tough program," Williams said. "You have to come in here physically and mentally prepared.""

Good luck Ben.  I am sure you will exceed expectations, just like in football.

Ben was a great football player considering he was a walk on he produced about 100 times more than most walk ons ever will.

Best of Luck to him in his career as a cop. Thats a tough a job but Im sure he can handle it.

He was exceptional for a walk-on.

He was no starting D1 running back.

I don't care how much you loved his character.
