Dubois Williams is one of the top AZ players. With his 6'6" athletic frame, and slashing ability, many looked forward to watching him explode in his final season at Marcos de Niza. That all came to an end back in December when he broke his foot. After two months of healing, his decision to come back at the end of region play has paid off for the Padres.
Williams, who as a sophomore helped lead is Marcos team to a state 5A championship, has steadily increased his stock around the country. He had an incredible summer in 2003 with the AZ Cagers Blue team, coached by his father Dave Williams. They ended their summer campaign with an impressive win in the Pangos Fall Classic, where with only five player, Williams was selected to the All-Tournament team.
Heading into this year's high school season, the sky was the limited for Williams, until his untimely injury. Williams, along with input from his father and doctors, decided he would return in time for the playoffs. And return he did. Since his return two weeks ago, Williams has averaged well over 20 ppg, and has carried his team into the state playoffs with a buzzer-beater last night over rival Corona. His plans for this summer and next year have not been determined, but watch out State Playoffs, the DUB is back in the house.
