"L.G. Williams, c'mon. Somebody please offer this kid. I mean, L.G. Williams can play football. He's going to win wherever he goes. He can spin it with the best guys in the class. He obviously has great energy in his feet, where he can move around.
"The game of football is changing to where you can not be six feet tall and still be successful because there's more space. It's going to take the right system fit, but there are a couple of sub 5'11" guys in this year's class that are really good and L.G. is at the top of that list," said Dilfer.
For the 5-foot-9, 190-pound Williams, who was one of the few top performers selected to compete in the Pressure Chamber drill, Dilfer's words were very well-received.
"It was a great feeling. I started laughing when I first heard it; I watched it a million times. It's heartwarming to hear him say those things about me. It makes me feel like I have another chance at the Elite 11 finals and another chance to show the world what I can do. I know I can play quarterback.
"Hearing guys like Trent Dilfer, George Whitfield, and Jordan Palmer say that they know I can play quarterback in college, well, that means the world to me. I know I can play quarterback at the next level, but for them to say that, it gives me the extra something to keep striving, keep doing what I can to get to the next level. Hearing that from them means everything," he said.

Now, Williams is hoping that his performance at the camp was strong enough to help him garner an invite to the Elite 11 finals, held in Oregon in early July.
"I talked to George Whitfield and he told me he liked the way I played; Coach Dilfer said the same thing. I just have to wait and be patient and hopefully I get that invite to the finals," he said.
Williams has picked up offers from UTSA and Sam Houston State as an athlete, and has had heavy interest from other programs, with plans to camp with North Texas, UTSA, Rice, and BYU. However, it's his shorter stature that has, for lack of better word, interfered with the recruiting process.
"Some coaches come out here and don't know if I can play quarterback, but I have confidence in myself. Montana State came by a few days ago, North Texas recently came down, and they just told me that they like the way I play and that they were going to watch me throughout the spring," he said.
The athlete is trying to put aside recruiting so he can focus on his upcoming season, his second as the Knights' Varsity starting quarterback.
"I just want to be a better leader, leading the right way and leading some of these young guys in the right direction for the future. I want to win state. That's all we ever want; that's our goal. We strive to stay together as a team and be able to accomplish these goals. We want to work as hard as we can," he said.
"We are going to run the ball and throw the ball, so it won't be too much of a change. We are going to be fine on offense. [2016 running back] Bryson Denley is just like Justin. When I see him run the ball, I think of Justin. When he's out there, it's crazy," he said.
Steele's 2013 season came to a disappointing and abrupt end in a playoff loss to San Antonio Johnson. Williams says that the team has learned from the adversity and is using it as motivation to come out strong in 2014.
"I want to help our team out even when things aren't going our way. We faced a lot of adversity in that last game versus Johnson. I told the team that we had to pull through, it was on us and we couldn't put it on anyone else. We didn't get the job last year, but it fires me up for this season. I get to come out with these guys that I love every day and just work to achieve the goal of winning state," he said.
