USC Football QB Caleb Williams often paints his nails before he goes onto the field. Sometimes, what he paints on is hilarious, like when he painted on 'F U UT' when he played at Oklahoma last year.

Sometimes, however, the messages get a little deeper than that. This past Saturday, Williams painted the phone number for the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline on his nails prior to the Week 6 tilt with Washington State:

To do this in general is huge. Suicide prevention awareness needs to be spread, and Williams is using his huge platform to help spread it. To do it just two days ahead of World Mental Health Day arguably meant even more.

Williams has been adamant in his efforts to spread suicide awareness, as he also founded the Caleb Cares Foundation, which sets out to eliminate bullying and spread mental health awareness. He also worked with other USC students to deliver a suicide awareness PSA last month. It's safe to say that Williams is most definitely more than an athlete.

USC Football QB Caleb Williams also threw two beautiful touchdown passes on Saturday, and didn't turn the ball over once.

Caleb Williams also ran the ball nine times for 34 yards on the ground for USC Football. He kept the defense honest, and it led to Washington State having a brutal time in trying to defend RB1 Travis Dye. Dye went for 149 rushing yards on 28 carries. SC won by a score of 30-14. They are now 6-0, and ranked in the top seven of the country.

Williams has been a massive part of that; averaging 9.7 adjusted passing yards per attempt, and scoring 17 touchdowns (14 passing) while only turning the football over once. Due to that performance, he's gained himself a massive following and platform. To use that platform to aid in an important cause like this is everything.
