Former UNC safety Deunta Williams now pursuing career in radio

A devastating leg injury was too much for to overcome. The former North Carolina safety is no longer pursuing a career as a football player. But that’s just fine with the 24-year-old Williams. “My football days are done,” he said in a recent telephone interview. “It was one of those career-ending injuries and there is nothing I can do about that. But I have so many opportunities for big things and big projects.” (Jacksonville Daily News)
