Recruiting Spotlight: Jacob Williams

25 Feb

The great Vince Lombardi once said, “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.” Well Jacob Williams doesn’t have to worry about that. This 5`8, 155 pound football player is a pure explosive playmaker. He reminds me of players like DeSean Jackson, Percy Harvin, Nnamdi Asomugha, and one of his sports heroes Champ Bailey with his great ball skills and speed.

Williams plays cornerback on the defensive side of the ball and wide receiver in the team’s pistol offense. He also handles the punt and kick return duties for St. Francis. In the 40 yard dash he runs a 4.65. Check out this exceptional player for yourself. Jersey Number: #10

He has received several honors for his play and leadership. He has 3 MVP awards, an Inspirational Player award, and Defensive Back award. Not only is he a great football player, he is a great student as well. Williams has a 3.2 GPA. These accolades haven’t gone unnoticed. Schools like Alberta, Bishop’s, Mount Allison, Waterloo, British Columbia, STFX, York, Western, Toronto, Wilfred Laurier, and Windsor has all shown interest in Williams.

The Building of a Program: Boise State

25 Nov

Found a great piece about the rise of the Boise State football program by CBS Sports. The Broncos fielded their first team in 1933. In 1958 they won the Junior College National Championship. And in 1996 the made the transition to Division 1-A. Thus, the dominance of the program is tremendous considering how young the team is in D1-A.

NCAA Rankings

18 Oct

And down goes the Ohio State Buckeyes!!! As quickly as they climbed to the number on spot, they relinquished it. Now the Coaches’ poll shows the Oregon Ducks as the #1 team. And of course one of my favorite teams the Boise State Broncos is #2. In the BCS they both took a step back because Oklahoma is the #1 ranked team.

Seven ranked teams lost this past weekend.

My alma mater is now the #19 team in the Coaches’ poll, which makes me happy 🙂

Virginia Tech’s Tyrod Taylor Is Ready

4 Sep

Before Monday’s big game at Fedex Field against Boise State, Virginia Tech starting QB Tyrod Taylor was impressive in the team’s final scrimmage. The senior QB completed 16 of 17 passing for 319 yards. The only incompletion was a pass thrown away to avoid a sack. People present said Taylor showed tremendous poise in the pocket, leadership with his teammates, and accuracy. He also got a comparison from his Head Coach Frank Beamer to former Virginia Tech QB Michael Vick.

Monday’s show down should be good. Boise State won’t back down.
