Get to know Carl Williams and Danye Price, the parents of the presumed No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, Caleb Williams.

Caleb Williams is the presumed No. 1 overall pick to the Chicago Bears in the 2024 NFL Draft. After a very successful career with USC, Williams declared for the draft, quickly making himself the top quarterback available. But the anticipated No. 1 selection didn’t make it this far on his own, as both of his parents were also collegiate athletes.

Let’s get to know Williams’ parents.

A Look At Caleb Williams’ Parents

An only child, Williams was born on Nov. 18, 2001, to Carl Williams and Danye Price.

The elder Williams married Price in 2000, and the two welcomed Caleb into the world one year later. The young family raised their son in Washington, D.C., where his football career would later get started. But both of his parents had a little bit of athletic abilities themselves.

Getting To Know Williams’ Father

Carl was a college football player himself at Oklahoma State. During Caleb’s Heisman Trophy acceptance speech, he explained the pivotal role that his father had played throughout his career and life.

“Thank you for showing me the way,” Williams said in his acceptance speech. “You instilled a work ethic in me at a young age that I can’t thank you enough for.”

Getting To Know Williams’ Mother

Price played college basketball and volleyball at the University of Maryland. Caleb said that his mother is the most important person in his life. She’s always been a mom first and the woman behind the scenes who inspires him in many ways.

Of course, Price was a part of the infamous viral moment after USC’s loss to Washington. Immediately following the game, Williams found his parents in the stands and jumped up into his mother’s arms. This moment was captured on the broadcast and heavily covered in the days and weeks following that game.

“Raw emotion, being human, being myself,” Williams said of that moment. “The emotions after the game is what it’s been ever since I lost my first game as a little kid.”
