Will Williams Line Up at FS or Rover?

Redshirt Sophomore Roger Williams, who was named top defensive newcomer last spring, will continue to be a valuable asset this upcoming season because of his versatility. The Seminole secondary will be young and the 6-foot-1 and 190 pound standout might be forced to play both safety positions.

This spring what are Coach Andrews' plans for Roger Williams?
"Roger came in during mid-term the year before last," Coach Andrews said.  "We redshirted him because he got hurt.  He played this year.  We ended moving him when Kyler (Hall) got hurt.  We ended up moving him from Rover to Free.  He's a guy that can play either position.  He might have to go back to Rover this year because we really didn't sign a Rover that we wanted."
If Williams moves back to Rover, he will compete with senior Kyler Hall, true freshman Dee McClure and true freshman Joe Manning for playing time.
As a redshirt freshman, Williams recorded 24 tackles and one interception.
Publisher's Note: Williams is a solid tackler that will bring experience to the strong-safety position.  There's a very good chance of him winning the starting job at that position.  If he is moved, Kenny Ingram and true freshman Clarence Ward will battle for the second string job at Free Safety.
