A Look At The Game Of Chaz Williams

Reporter Mike Sullivan has the story on rising junior guard Chaz Williams of Bishop Ford High School in Brooklyn, New York ...

Bishop Ford head coach John Infortunio is losing two key members of his team due to graduation. However, he does have energetic lead guard Chaz Williams returning giving Infortunio plenty of reason to be excited about the 2007-2008 season.

"Chaz sees the play finish before it even starts," Infortunio stated. "He has really matured over the past year and now everyone looks up to him for leadership. That's saying a lot for him when he was a sophomore this season."

Infortunio was an assistant coach on the freshman team before being named the head coach at Bishop Ford. So he had an opportunity to watch and get to know Williams, who recently gave an early verbal commitment to Hofstra University.

Williams, a 2009 prospect, averaged 18 points and 12 assists two seasons ago on the freshman team. Williams, 5-foot-8, 145-pounds, has some energy to his first step. He does a nice job moving into the lane and creating offensive chances for himself and his teammates.

"He won't be a secret next season," Infortunio wisely stated. "He will see different defenses. This summer we are trying to get him used to some more adversity and different defenses he will see.

"We're working with him hard in the offseason. So the challenge for Chaz will be how he will adjust to the different defenses he faces in the next year."
