CENTRAL, S.C. — DeShawn Williams is one of four former Clemson football players, current NFL players and Daniel High School graduates who returned to their alma mater on Friday for the third annual Alumni Football Camp at Daniel High, a camp for youth kids that was started by Jarvis Jenkins and DeAndre Hopkins.
Williams, a defensive tackle for the Cincinnati Bengals, is happy to be home and appreciates the opportunity to give back to the community.
“It’s great to be back home,” Williams said. “Just to come back and see the kids, see the smiles on their faces … For us to come back and give back to the kids, it’s great.”
They say time flies when you’re having fun, and that has been the case for Williams, who is entering his third training camp with the Bengals.
“It’s going by fast,” Williams said. “I just do what I have to do, have fun and take it day by day.
“It’s great. A lot of people don’t make it three years. I’m truly blessed to be on a team that likes me, and now it’s on me to take it day by day and give it my all.”
