Earlier this week, Boom Williams’ younger sister passed away, tragic news the junior running back revealed on Twitter with a touching tribute:

During a media opportunity this afternoon, Mark Stoops was asked how Boom is coping, and said the team is doing its best to support him.

We are his home away from home and we’re trying to be very supportive of Boom,” Stoops said, via Saturday Down South. “He’s handled it the best he can. He’s been at almost all the workouts. He went home and went back for the funeral and the services and is back at work. We’re trying to support him the best we can in a difficult situation.”

This morning, Boom toured the new training facility with the rest of the team, and it was good to see a smile on his face when he checked out the new weight room with Sihiem King and JoJo Kemp:


You and your family are still in our thoughts and prayers, Boom.
