Mike Williams profile
"I went to Mississippi State's camp for three days," said Williams. "We did some one-on-ones, some route running and some drops. There were a good amount of quarterbacks there. Jeremy Collins and Willie Bradford were there, but Willie was there as a DB. Jeremy looked pretty good when I saw him. I only got to see him for one day. He came as a day camper and he was on the other side of the field from us."
While Mike was quick to point out the play of other prospects, he believes he made a good showing for himself.
"I think I did real good," said Williams. "I learned a lot. I was pretty accurate on all of my throws. I was getting my drops down and all of that."
One of the main benefits of attending a college camp is getting feedback from college coaches. Mike was pleased with what he heard from Coaches Les Koenning and Dan Mullen. He also picked up some tips that should help him this season.
"They told me that I had a pretty strong arm and I was good on the deep ball," said Williams. "They told me they wanted me to get the ball out quicker and get back in my drops."
Mike agreed with the coaches' assesment of his preformance.
"The drops were the main thing I improved on," said Williams. "I think I needed the most work on that and throwing on the run. I feel like I learned a lot at the camp. I hope I hear more from them in the future."
This season Mike and his teammates will make the move to 5A in Mississippi's newly aligned six classifications.
"I think we can do some good things," said Williams. "We play with a lot of speed. We're not that big, but we can play speed. I think we can get in the playoffs and then whatever happens, happens."
