Ivan Andy "Ike" Williams (January 3, 1903 – May, 1977) was an American football player. Williams played college football at Georgia Tech, where he was a running back as well as a placekicker. In 1925, Tech met rival Georgia for the first time since 1916. Williams thought the game clock read five seconds remaining in the third quarter when in actuality it was five minutes. Williams set up his offense for a field goal and kicked it to put Tech up 3–0 on first down. Luckily for Williams, Tech won 3–0.[1] He then played professional football with the Newark Bears and Staten Island Stapletons.[2] In his season with the Stapes, Williams suffered a season-ending injury against the New York Giants.[3]
