MEMPHIS, TN - Memphis Tigers running back DeAngelo Williams just keeps adding honors to his resume, and now it's Conference USA offensive player of the year.

The Wynne native has now tied Louisville quarterback Dave Ragone with his third straight offensive player of the year honor.  Williams is also a three-time All C-USA honoree.  He led the league in rushing and ranked second nationally.

Williams helped lead the Wynne Yellowjackets to the 2001 class AAAA state title.
