Willie Williams still setting records

There's little doubt that Willie Williams has always had the ability to play against anyone, and despite his many problems in the past, the one-time Monsignor Pace and Carol City standout linebacker has found a way to keep on moving forward – even if the school is small and the crowds are even smaller.

Far from the city traffic of South Florida, Williams, a starting linebacker for No. 14 Union College (6-2) in Barbourville, K.Y., is turning plenty of heads, and showing NFL scouts that he still has the same talent that brought him so much fame before signing with the University of Miami.

On Thursday, in a 33-27 loss to No. 25 Shorter (Ga.) College, Williams recorded a school-record 22 tackles with two going for a loss of 4 yards and a forced fumble.

Williams now has 105 tackles on the season, becoming the 11th player in program history to record 100 tackles in a season. His 105 stops ranks sixth in program history. His team still has three regular season games left before the playoffs.

Love to read things like this. Having known his family for years, I am proud of Willie.

When he was running out of options, he chose to do the right thing go back to school...any school.

I believe his brother is being redshirted at LSU.
