This past fall, AL.com reporter Natalie Pierre Williams was injured in a car fire in Hoover, Alabama. Williams was severely harmed in the accident -- she suffered burns to 75 percent of her body and has since undergone numerous procedures.

She has been in the UAB ICU for five months, and a prominent college football wife sent Williams her best wishes this past Christmas season. Shelley Meyer, the wife of Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer, sent a care package to Williams a short while ago. It includes a lengthy note, an inspirational book and a wrapped gift.

Meyer reminds Williams that they met before the accident in her letter. Our best wishes go out to Williams, and good for the Meyer family for extending a kind hand toward someone going through a rough time.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
