"I didn't get a chance to make it to the game, but I checked it out on the T.V," LaMarcus Williams said from Bastrop, (Louis.).
"We have to slow down on the turnovers, and we will be all right. They capitalized on everything we did wrong."
Williams said there is no wavering in his commitment to Alabama, "I am still firm, trying to get there as soon as possible."
Williams has helped his defense in posting five shutouts, giving up only 5.3 points per game with 14 points being the season high allowed. Bastrop is 12-0 and ranked third in the state as they prepare to play Ouachita Parish in Monroe Friday night.
"We are undefeated. I don't know any of my stats this time of the year. I don't worry about that stuff until after I get that ring," Williams said of his season.
The senior defensive tackle is currently playing at 287 pounds and says his most improved area this season, "My run skills, being able to stop the run."
Williams knows what it takes to see the field early once he arrives at the Capstone.
"I am going to work-out and run everyday to stay in shape, and hopefully I can play early."
Grades are not a problem with a reported ACT score of 19 and a 3.5 GPA. "Academics are important to me. Got to have them to play football," he said.
Williams remains in regular contact with Alabama's coach Charlie Harbinson.
"I talk to Coach Cheese a lot," he said. "He is real down-to-earth. Gets right to the point."
