When Tennessee Titans linebacker Avery Williamson takes the field on Sept. 11th … he’ll be playing with a special set of cleats created to honor those who passed on 9/11. 

The NFL regular season happens to begin on the 15 year anniversary of the terror attacks — and many of the players are planning to pay tribute to the victims, first responders and other people affected by the tragedy. 

One of those players is Williamson — who approached cleat customizer Billy Hobbs at True Blue Customs and asked for a special design … and Hobbs came through strong.  

Hobbs airbrushed a pair of Nike Vapors to resemble the American flag, and added the words “Never Forget” and “9/11″ to the back of each cleat. 


Several NFL players have talked about playing on 9/11 — including NY Jets center Nick Mangold — who previously said, “It is truly an honor to open the season at home, at MetLife Stadium, on the 15th anniversary of 9/11.”

“I know that will be an emotional time for everyone, as it was (on the 10th anniversary) in 2011.”
