Former NFL running back and Texas Longhorn Ricky Williams is a very spiritual person.

In a commercial for the Longhorn Network, he gets to show off that spiritual side by reading a hilarious poem about being a running back.

"Linebacker, backs down. Defensive back, too small. Little guy. BOOM! Those your friends? BOOM! BOOM! Hearts breaking. TOUCHDOWN!"

[Longhorn Network, h/t Yahoo Sports]
