Travis Williams: Auburn Tiger Graduate Assistant Mixes Football with Culture

You're at an Auburn game this year. You are sitting in the stands while kickoff is about 40 minutes away. A music video comes on the AUHD Jumbotron. You might have heard this song before on YouTube or so, but chances are you haven't hear it.
The song is called "Tiger Walk" and it deals with Auburn Tigers football and its current and historical success. It's a rap song and it's by some guy named T-Will. Just another AU song by an amateur rapper, right? Only, there's nothing amateur about this guy.
T-Will is a nickname for Travis Williams, the fantastic former linebacker at Auburn from 2002-2005. He was a starter on the 2004 team that went 13-0 and won the SEC Championship and the Sugar Bowl, so he knows what it's like to win.
This time, however, he's prepared for it with a studio and a whistle rather than some shoulder pads.
Travis Williams is a defensive graduate assistant at Auburn. Also, he had a very brief career with the NFL's Atlanta Falcons.
He recently checked in at No. 24 in Bleacher Report's "Top 40 Auburn Tigers Ever" list.
Outside of helping coach the guys up on the field, he also is an aspiring rap artist. Some of his songs include "Get Low" and "Thinkin Bout You."
However, you won't hear those songs jamming in cars around Auburn nearly as much as the two Auburn songs he's made.
His original, "Tiger Walk," was made before the season, and his most recent Auburn song, "Amazing Champion," debuted about three weeks ago. That song is basically about what the title says. Bragging about the championship season Auburn has had.
To check out "Tiger Walk" featuring Knuck, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qf6Y2_dFhrs. To check out "Amazing Champion" featuring The University, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1q5bhfaFDo&feature=related. Of course, these are the two songs that relate to Auburn football.
I should go ahead and add that all rights belong to Major League Entertainment.
T-Will also recently had a contest where he was giving away tickets to the BCS National Championship Game against Oregon on Jan. 10, 2011. It is way too late to enter, seeing as the winners were announced today, but that was a very cool thing for him to do.
As I already pointed out, this is the second unbeaten season Travis Williams has been a part of. This is the first national title game, however, so this one might be a little bit sweeter for T-Will.
His music has become very popular among Auburn fans. The three most common songs I heard on game days this year were "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor, "All I Do Is Win" by DJ Khaled and T-Pain, and T-Will's "Tiger Walk."
T-Will's album, appropriately titled "Undefeated," is available now on iTunes.
