Overview

Ricky Williams: Dreadlocks to Ditka is the first book about college football's Heisman Trophy winner and the first-round draft pick of Coach Mike Ditka's New Orleans Saints. Ditka coveted 1998's Heisman Trophy winner so much that he traded all of the Saints' 1999 draft picks for the right to choose the former University of Texas star. From his prep days in San Diego as an all-sports star to his record-breaking career with the Longhorns, Williams has had to overcome personal obstacles his entire life. He's done so, however, with grace, class, and style, even though his trademark dreadlocks and pierced tongue may present a different persona. Ditka proclaimed Williams the National Football League's next superstar.
