Williams About to Blow Up

Posted Feb 17, 2011

Hancock High head coach David King has coached in some of the best districts in the state of Mississippi. After stops at Starkville and West Point, King landed at Hancock High where he plans to lead the Hawks to prominence on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Coach King's job was made a little easier last season by the emergence of wide out Tyrone Williams perhaps the best player nobody is talking about

Tyrone Williams profile

"Tyrone had a real good year for us," said King. "He runs really well. He's a low 4.5s, 4.4 kid. He's got great speed. He returned some kicks for us last year too because he can out run everybody."

Williams turned in a superb junior season totaling 1,027 receiving yards and ten touchdown catches. The 6-1, 180 pounder returned a pair of kicks for scores and threw a touchdown pass.

With the stat line full as a junior, Tyrone's rise as a college prospect is rather remarkable considering his years as an underclassman.

"He transferred over here from Harrison Central as a freshman," said Coach King. "His sophomore year we had a lot of seniors and we were more of a running team.

"He caught one pass that year for a touchdown against Pascagoula and that might have been the only pass we threw him all year.

"Now he's pretty much become our go to guy."

Despite a robust junior campaign, Tyrone has not received the notoriety he deserves.

"He hasn't really done anything," said King. "He hasn't been to any combines and he didn't go to any camps last year.

"We started sending out some highlight films of him because nobody knows about him. He's a college prospect for sure."

Coach King knows a thing or two about coaching college wide receiver prospects.

"I coached Freddie Milons who went to Alabama and played for the Philadelphia Eagles in the National Football league and I coached Michael Carr who is up at Mississippi State right now," said King.

"Carr's one in a million. He's a Sunday talent. You don't get them like him very often.

"I put Tyrone right behind those guys. He has to work a lot harder at it, but he has the chance to be very, very good."
