Williams Ready To Do Whatever It Takes
Rosa Fort stormed through the better part of their regular season taking many teams by surprise. They even had a playoff win over East Side before being eliminated by Houston.
The Lions will return a majority of their team for the 2016 season including speedy wide receiver Tony Williams.
“We had a great season,” Williams told SES Mississippi. “Our coaches taught us so much and we used that on the field.”
Williams showed glimpses of being a serious breakaway threat in his sophomore season and says he plans to do whatever it takes this offseason to make those glimpses turn into an every down type of thing.
"I want to get stronger,” Williams said. “I’m going to a lot of camps. I’m the fastest guy on our team and I’m ready to do what it takes to play D1 football. I love this game.”
Williams says he is putting in extra work each day to make sure he can be at his best when the fall rolls around. When asked what was driving him to work so hard, he had the perfect response.
“I love this game and I’m doing it for my mom,” Williams explained. “She has been raising me all of my life and she has taught me to always do the right thing and keep my head in the books.”
Tony, along with many of his Lion teammates, plans to attend the Fortius Project on April 30th at Itawamba Community College. He says he has big plans for the event.
“I plan to accomplish a lot,” Williams added. “I plan to show up and show out.”
As of now there are more than 15 Rosa Fort Lions signed up to compete in the event. Williams says he isn’t surprised by that at all.
“We are all very close. They are my brothers.
