Episode 8: "Family Ties" - October 10

"Brick by Brick" is how Jerry Kill is building the Gopher football program. It means being consistent, and doing things the right way -- the hard way. It means not taking the easy way out, no shortcuts. For Minnesota Football, "Brick by Brick" isn't just a saying -- it's a lifestyle.

Golden Gopher redshirt freshman tight end Maxx Williams has a deep family connection with the University of Minnesota -- his parents Rochele (former Gopher volleyball player) and Brian (10-year NFL veteran and Super Bowl champion) were Minnesota graduates. Learn the story of Maxx's journey to the U and his developing connection with roommate/quarterback Mitch Leidner in this week's episode of "Brick by Brick"!
