Caleb Williams spends his bye week at anti-bullying event with Boys and Girls Club of LA
Caleb Williams said his goal for Saturday was to rest up, play some video games for a bit of relaxation, and then meet up with his teammates for the evening. The Trojan quarterback wanted to take it easy during the bye week.
Instead of an on-field impact this weekend, Williams made an off-field one. On Friday, he partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Metro L.A. for an anti-bullying event that included serving students from a local food truck and a speaking event about the importance of standing up to bullying. Williams’ foundation, Caleb Cares, also awarded the first-ever Caleb Cares Hero Award.

When the second-year star transferred to USC this offseason and landed in Los Angeles, his platform exploded. He took college football by storm a year ago with his play at Oklahoma, but in Los Angeles, the spotlight was firmly fixed on Williams. He has used it to make a difference in the mental health space.
Williams cut a PSA earlier this year on mental health awareness. Two weeks in a row, Williams painted his nails with the number for the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline. He’s a budding star in college football, and is using the voice that comes with it to be a force for good.
