Rob Williams finally Player of the Week
Rob Williams has been having one tremendous season so far for the Batavia football team.
Yet he hadn't won Section 5 Class B Player of the Week for offense or defense yet.
His numbers were hard to ignore from this past Friday's 32-13 win over Penn Yan and now the Batavia senior has been named Offensive Player of the Week this week.
Williams picked up 267 yards on the ground and scored a pair of touchdowns, while catching a pair of passes for 29 yards and returning two kickoffs for touchdowns, one for 90 yards and another for 94.
I spoke with coach Dan Geiger after the game it he was pretty confident that his tailback had to get the award this week.
"If he doesn't win it this week, they just aren't going to give it to him," said the coach.
Williams was held to just 17 yards on seven carries in the season opening loss to Le Roy, but has been putting up impressive numbers every week since.
He now has 878 yards on the ground with 10 touchdowns.
He has also been a star on defense and special teams.
He had an interception, two fumble recoveries and a big stop on a 2-point conversion play in a Week 2 loss against Pal-Mac.
Williams also had a 99-yard fumble recovery in a Week 4 win over Midlakes.
He's been having a great season in all three aspects of the game and could be in the running for Class B Player of the Year of Batavia keeps getting the job done on the field.
The Blue Devils are 3-2 and currently the No. 8 seed in Class B, with a great chance of making the sectional tournament.
