Matt Williams (born in Weatherford, Texas) is a walk on place kicker for the Texas Tech Red Raiders football team. Williams was offered the position, two others having failed to succeed for the team at that point, after winning a year's worth of free rent in a place kicking contest at one of the Red Raiders games.

Williams attended Weatherford High School in Weatherford, Texas, where he played soccer and football. In football, he played both receiver and kicker. His signature moment as a kicker occurred when he kicked a 49-yard field goal through the uprights to defeat rival Mineral Wells High School in overtime. He graduated from Weatherford in 2006.

Williams walked on at Tarleton State University as a football player, though was only on the team for a month and never played a game.
