Iowa State Adds Eight To Its Hall Of Fame
Willoughby led Iowa State to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances in 1996 and 1997 while earning All-America honors both seasons. The 1996 Big Eight Newcomer of the Year is still Iowa State's single-season leader in 3-pointers made with 102.
The dead-eye shooter was thrilled to be a hall of fame selection in his first year of eligibility.
"This is the greatest honor I could receive," Willoughby said. "I truly love Iowa State and I owe so much to this University. Iowa State gave me an opportunity to excel and I am forever indebted to this place."
Williams, who was an All-American offensive lineman for the Cyclones in 1990, forged a solid NFL career after graduating from Iowa State. Williams started 65 games in the NFL, including a spot on the offensive line for the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl XXXIII.
Williams was thrilled to be back on a football weekend.
"I am really excited," Williams said. "I wasn't expecting it and wasn't prepared for it. I am honored to be in. It's great to see some of my old teammates. Keith Sims made it back and I think he is more excited for me than I am. It is so great to have him back in Ames to celebrate this weekend."
A total of 142 athletes have been enshrined into the Iowa State Letterwinners Club Athletics Hall of Fame, which was established in 1997.
