Williams Focused on Task at Hand

Detroit King (Mich.) senior QB Davaun Williams has more important things than recruiting on his mind, namely, leading his team to a City Championship and then setting his sights on the state title.

A big win over Detroit Cass Tech last week has Detroit King playing for a City Championship on Friday, as well as a guaranteed spot in the state playoffs.

Leading the way has been senior quarterback Davaun Williams, not only with his arm, but with his leadership as well.

"This is a big game," he said of Friday's date with East English Village Prep. "It's my senior year, playing for the city championship, it gets no bigger than that. Me and my team were 0-3, now we're on a five game winning streak and it will continue on Friday."

That rough start included a narrow double overtime loss to Southfield and another close defeat to East English, which the Crusaders hope to avenge this week. Williams believes his team's resurgence since then has come more from the mental side than physical.

"Just staying focused. Even though we had some miscommunication early on, we came together, stayed focused and understand what we needed to do."

The schools Williams says he hears the most from at this point are Northern Michigan, Wayne State, Grand Valley State, and Northwood.

"I've been to Wayne State's game, been to Grand Valley's game, been to Michigan State, and I have Northwood coming up."

Where he'll go to college is not on the forefront of his mind right now though, as there are more pressing matters to take care of first.

"To be honest, recruiting is not the main focus on my mind. Friday, for one, and getting down [to Ford Field] the day after Thanksgiving."
