Former Sun Devil wide receiver ready for a career in medicine
Kyle Williams was a standout receiver for ASU’s Sun Devils football squad, one of the team’s all-time pass reception leaders who many thought would find a place in the National Football League. But he was also an outstanding graduate of the Fulton Schools biomedical engineering program who had an eye on a medical career. While a sports agent was ready to contact NFL teams to gauge their interest in giving Williams a tryout, Williams decided to pursue his aspiration to become a surgeon. Today he is a student at the Mayo Clinic Axis School of Medicine — applying the same determination to his goals as a future physician that he used to become a successful college athlete.
