Default Report: Ex-Gators great, Dolphins safety Williams dies at 45

Former Florida Gators great Jarvis Williams, who spent seven years in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants, has died at 45 of an apparent heart attack, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Williams was named to Florida's All-Century team in 1999 after playing in Gainesville from 1984-87, recording 239 tackles and 10 interceptions. He was inducted into the school's athletic Hall of Fame in 2001.

After being drafted in the second round in 1988, Williams was a starter at safety for the Dolphins from 1989-93, then finished his NFL career with the Giants. Williams' son plays at Jacksonville University under former Gators quarterback Kerwin Bell.

"I'm sorry to learn of the loss of Jarvis Williams, who was not only a personal friend but a tremendous football player for both the Dolphins and the Gators," Dolphins vice president of alumni relations Nat Moore said in a statement released by the team. "He dedicated his life to coaching and helping young people and it's a real tragedy for him to pass away at such an early age."

Wow. It's sad how many of these guys die young.
