Williams Dominant in Loss to Easley


Clemson verbal commitment DeShawn Williams helped the Daniel defense hold Easley to six points, but it wasn’t enough for the victory.

“I am pretty beat-up.  They played a Wing T so we had to get down and dirty,” said Williams.

Suspensions to several key offensive players hampered the Daniel offense.

“We had three players that couldn’t play because of the fight against Wren.  That didn’t go in our favor.  We lost 6-0.  Our offense had their moments when they ran down the field, but they couldn’t score,” said Williams.

DeShawn and the defense did their best to carry the Lions to a victory, but came up just short.

“Our defense played good.  We gave up one big play on play action.  We kept them in check.  It was a hard fought game that came down to the end,” said Williams.

The top defensive tackle expects better things this Friday.

“This week we play at Greenville.  We should be alright for that game.  Everyone will be back except Antonio.  He will be back for Westside,” said Williams.

DeShawn lived in the backfield at Easley as he got off to a quick start on his senior season.

“I played pretty well.  I probably had three tackles for loss and seven or eight tackles.  We were flying around to the ball.  I got triple teamed half the time.  I take pride in that because it shows I am doing something right,” said Williams.
