To be selected as one of Gwinnett County's finest, an area that produces many top college football prospects, is an honor in itself. Collins Hill (GA) receiver Julian Williams was selected to be honored among a receiving core that ranked among the best.

Williams and his teammates took the field on Friday night at Peachtree Ridge, many for the final time as high school seniors.

"The three short days I got to meet my new teammates and prepare for the game was a blast," Williams said of his time as a Gwinnett All-Star. "I was able to be coached by the best in Gwinnett County and arguably the best in the nation in high school football."

Williams competed for Head Coach Jess Simpson of Buford High School, alongside his Collins Hill teammates Brett Sheehan and Chris Palmer.

"I led Simpson's team in receiving yards," Williams said of his five catches for 60 yards and a touchdown. Team Simpson beat Team Small, coached by South Gwinnett's John Small in a 23-21 victory.

As for Williams' future beyond the high school gridiron, the receiver plans to take visits in January before making his college football decision.

"Georgia State possibly, Old Dominion and Valdosta State," Williams said of the schools he would like to see. He has not yet set a date for any of his official visits.
