Levi Williams scored a 13-yard touchdown off a broken play to help Utah State top New Mexico last week and helped the Aggies clinch a bowl berth for the third consecutive year.
Getting to a fourth consecutive bowl game does not seem to be the main purpose for Williams though, as he revealed on Monday he will forgo his final year of eligibility to join U.S. Navy SEAL training.
“I love football and it’s so great. But I knew that, eventually, it was going to come to an end,” he told KSL Sports Zone.
“I just want to be in a spot where I can protect this great country where we get to play football with the freedom to do that. I think this is the best country in the world. So I’d like to keep it that way and protect it as long as I can.”
Williams, a graduate junior quarterback, will try to continue his family’s legacy of being in the military and. The selection process will start in February, and the training would start in the summer.
“It’s always been in my heart my entire life. My mom was Army. My grandparents were Army and Navy,” he told The Athletic. “People in the military are always what I want to emulate, because they’re some of the best people, best teams on the planet.”

He joined Utah State following his third year at Wyoming in 2021. He appeared minimally for the Aggies in 2022 and 2023, and it was not until last Friday that he finally got a chance to shine.
Williams was 16-for-27 with 198 passing yards and two touchdowns. He had three rushing touchdowns as well. Utah State won the game, 44-41.
