The running back/cornerback athlete was running a deep receiver route toward the end zone when he tripped and fell on the grass over the goal line. The two defenders covering him dropped their guard.
Laying on his back, Williams put his hands in the air to catch the football falling right at him.
The unlikely touchdown catch scored six points for Stepinac (Yonkers, NY) in its 49-28 win over Canisius (Buffalo, NY) in the state Catholic championship and the number one play on SportsCenter for Williams.
Williams ended the game with 141 total yards, three touchdowns and an interception.
The 6-foot-2-inch, 190-pound White Plains, NY native is listed as an athlete on 247Sports.com. He is able to play multiple positions, primarily running back and cornerback.
He is a 3-star player ranked as the 695th best college prospect nationally, 58th nationally among athletes and 9th in New York among athletes.
Williams committed to Syracuse on March 27. He participated in Syracuse football’s Junior Day on January 14.
