It was a somewhat tough year for athlete Zoey Williams and the Sugar Land (TX) Dulles team. Expectations were high, but the team fell a bit short. And while Williams is a team-first type player, there have been a number of things going on for him on the personal level that has him excited and grateful.
"I made a lot of people proud tonight. This was a big night for our program and my family," Williams said.
And there are likely to be more big nights. Two of which will start this weekend. Williams was clear in saying that he is still committed to Miner program, but there have been a number of schools recruiting him as of late and he wants to check a few of them out.
According to Williams, there was a slight hold up that had several programs hesitant to want to offer him. Now that this roadblock is out of the way, Williams believes that even more good news will come his way.
"I got all of my academic situations figured out. That is all done now," Williams said. "I think that more offers are on the way."
And rightfully so. Williams is labeled as a pure, lockdown type cornerback, which is position any program can use. This season Williams had 60 tackles, six pass break-ups and three interceptions.
So what is his plan?
"I'm still committed (to UTEP), but I am still working the recruiting process. There will be some choices I am going to have to make," Williams said. "I am thankful that all of this is happening. I know that this is all God. It's like one school after another has been coming after me. This is a blessing that I can't even put human hands on."
