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.

Virginia: The London Effect

28 Dec

After an expected horrible year, University of Virginia head coach Mike London is having great success this offseason. The first year head coach knew coming into the UVA job that the task of rebuilding the program would be a long, slow process. Thus, one of his key goals was to recruit the state of Virginia harder than before.

Virginia is known for its outstanding athletes in the “757” region of the state. London knew if his program was to have any success he would need to push for this area. Well, so far this offseason he has secured 13 of the state’s top 25 athletes. He has commitments from top CB Demetrious Nicholson, QB David Watford, and LB Da’Quan Romero.

London one of my coaching idols, is off to a good start recruiting and will be a thorn in the side of Virginia Tech recruiting prowess in the state of Virginia.
