It's been a long time coming for junior Marshall Williams, but his time has finally arrived.
Behind one of the biggest gun slingers in the state of Texas, the Flower Mound product has been playing wide receiver the last two years, waiting for Paul Millard to graduate. Now Millard is looking for a college program to join, while Williams is transitioning from receiver to quarterback.
"It's really been something I've been looking forward to. I love being the guy out there during off-season workouts for the team leading and definitely can't wait until we actually start playing football. I know I can be the guy out there," said Williams.
Last weekend, Williams participated in the Army All-American Combine. With his lack of game film at quarterback, he will be hitting as many camps and combines as he can, hoping he impresses someone before his senior year.
"They weren't allowed to tell us any of our stats, but I think I did pretty well," said William. "The combine was great, and I will definitely be going to as many junior days as I can. Plus, I know will be attending the elite-11 camp. Camps are going to be very important for my future."
"The plan is to camp at OU, Texas A&M, SMU, TCU, and Arizona. Hopefully more. I'm not sure yet about Texas because of the coaching staff changes. Coach Kennedy was my recruiter," said Williams.
As a junior wide receiver, Williams caught 22 balls for 223 yards and five touchdowns. When playing quarterback, he went 11-for-15 for 78 yards.
"It sucks not having much quarterback film, but there is nothing I can do about it. I just have to go and impress people."
