Upstate NY receiver getting upstate NY interest

Riverside High School (Buffalo, NY) Head Football Coach Tony Truilizio knows he has a special talent in Wide Receiver Mike Williams and two Division 1 football schools are starting to notice it.

"Syracuse and Buffalo are showing the most interest in Mike as of now. Mike is going to Buffalo to check out there spring practice this weekend and is going to Syracuse next weekend for there spring practice junior day.

"He is getting mail from Michigan but is about it. I think a lot of schools don't know about him because we are a small city school and don't participate in the state playoffs (Buffalo city schools have there own football tournament called the Harvard Cup). He is the best football player to come out of the Harvard Cup league since Malik Campbell who went on to play at Syracuse. He can do it all, can jump out of the gym, got great hands, and has track speed. He is a legitimate Division 1 talent."

Coach Truilizio went to say that there is one school that Mike likes a lot. "He likes Syracuse a lot. Coach Spencer calls here every two weeks and says there really high on him and can't wait to see him. I think if everything goes well on his visit next weekend he could get an offer. He wants to commit early before football season starts." Williams plans on camping at Buffalo and Syracuse this summer.

Mike Williams is a 6-foot-3, 200-pound Wide Receiver that made 1st team All Western New York as a junior in 2004. He led the Riverside football team to a Harvard Cup championship and the basketball team to Yale Cup championship. The first time that has been done since 1984. Williams runs a 4.5 forty and has a 40 inch vertical leap. He is widely recognized by many as one of the top ten football players in New York State for this upcoming season.
