Ricky Williams, M.D.

In a recent interview with AP sports writer, Jim Vertuno, Ricky Williams mentioned he would like to go to medical school after he's done with football to be an "osteopathic physician so he can offer patients a holistic approach to healing." Sounds like someone wants to be able to give out special prescriptions.

June 26, 2008…Training camp is just under a month away now. I’ve learned so much over the last few years. I’ve matured, not just as a football player, but as a human being as well. Football is a very stressful job and I didn’t know how to handle it when I was younger. For years I avoided being tackled, because that’s what I was told to do. But now I’ve realized I have to tackle my issues head on. I know how to deal with the stress and I’m ready to show others but more importantly show myself that I can deal with the pressure. Many people have talked about how I haven’t lived up to my potential. They’ve criticized my drive in life and choices I’ve made on and off the field. But I have to remember that I’ll be training hard for football for the next few months, but I will be training hard for life long after that.
