HAMLIN — There have been faster players in the Big Country than Hamlin’s Devon Williams. There have been better running backs, better receivers, better tacklers, better defensive backs and better special teams players.
But few, very few players over the years, have been able to point to a statistical sheet and show more production in all the aforementioned areas than the HHS standout is posting this season.
Williams, along with his Hamlin teammates, will be facing Wellington in the Region II-2A DII championship game on Friday in Vernon. And in all likelihood, he will be a key element if the Pied Pipers (10-2) are to advance to the state semifinals.
“We’ve had some really good offensive players and really good defensive players,” Hamlin coach Russell Lucas said. “But not very often is it the same person.”
