As Hutchinson Community College gets ready to finish up its football season this Saturday with a road game at Independence C.C., earlier this week beat writer Kyle McCaskey of the Hutch News wrote a notes column and he had uncovered an interesting story about Larry Williams, who is Oklahoma State's latest offensive line commitment.
Here is a bit of the note on Williams that McCaskey had in his notes column from Nov. 1.
At 6-foot-5-inches and 339 pounds, Williams tops the charts in both height and weight for Hutchinson. Asked if he can defeat an opposing pass rusher with sheer size, Williams laughs and confirms that is often the case. However, he has slimmed down this year, making him use finesse more often.
“Like any position, you definitely have to give some effort. Definitely have to give some aggression to it,” Williams said. “I think, coming in here, isolating myself away from North Carolina and coming to Kansas, definitely made me transfer some of that frustration toward the field and put it to other people in pads.”
Williams, from Wilmington, N.C., began his college career at East Carolina University before transferring to Hutchinson. He has been a pillar for a Blue Dragon offensive line that has been ravaged by injuries throughout the season.
Williams has always loomed large over his opponents. He was 5-foot-10 in sixth grade. He was actually a triplet – he has a brother and sister.
The average triplet weighs four pounds at birth. Williams was seven.
“I guess you could say I ate all the food from my brothers and sisters,” Williams said.
Williams verified the triplets story and verified that he has grown up larger than the other two triplets. Williams confirmed Thursday night to Go Pokes that he is a firm commitment to the Cowboys.
