Williamson named Academy Sports Player of the Week

After starting the season 1-1, North Forrest hoped to get a win over the Eagles' rival Seminary in week three. North Forrest came away with a 22-20 win on Friday, and a big part of that win was sophomore Christian Williamson.

Williamson led North Forrest with 157 yards and three touchdowns, but he knows he could not have done it all alone. "Those guys (offensive line) are great. They gave me huge holes to run through and I wouldn't be able to do anything if they didn't block. I thank them every day," Williamson said.

As good as he was on offense, that was not the only place the second year starter made his presence felt. Williamson also plays cornerback for the Eagle defense where he racked up a few tackles and an interception helping North Forrest get its second victory of the year. North Forrest head coach Anthony Dillon said it was a special performance for sophomore. "He played with a lot of energy Friday night. He put the team on his back and made plays when we needed him to make plays. Like I said Christian is a very good player and he showed his athleticism on Friday night," Dillon said.

Williamson and the Eagles enter the fourth week of the young football season with a 2-1 record. North Forrest will host Wingfield on Friday in Eatonville.
