Size does not deter Brevard from signing North Centrals Williams
NORTH CENTRAL SENIOR Clarence Williams (seated) became the first Kershaw County football player to sign with a college in 2013 when he signed a national letter-of-intent with Brevard College. Joining Williams for his signing were, from left, NCHS principal Worth Thomasson, NCHS guidance counselor Amy Jenkins, NCHS track and field head coach Carl Olson, NCHS ROTC instructor Chief Warrant Officer Clyde Smith and NCHS football coach and athletic director Louis Clyburn.
There was a point in his years at North Central when Clarence Williams was down on himself and wondered what was out there for him, both athletically and academically.At 5-foot-5 and weighing 150 pounds, Williams knew he was not going to get looks from major college football programs. But he went searching for answers and help as to what lied ahead. He found an open door and open ears in the form of Knights’ head football coach Louis Clyburn and members of his coaching staff.Shortly thereafter, Williams emerged from those conversations a different young man and athlete, so much so that Brevard College was more than willing to give Williams the shot to make his college dreams come true.
