Williams, a junior from Purcellville, Va., led a strong Yellow Jackets defensive unit in Randolph-Macon's 48-35 win at Hampden-Sydney to clinch the 2018 ODAC title and a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Williams made five stops on the day including one for loss and broke up a pass, but his biggest contributions came in the turnover game. He was responsible for all three takeaways by the R-MC defense as the unit allowed just 14 points thru the first three quarters. Williams first takeaway was a fumble recovery on the first play from scrimmage following a long completion to H-SC receiver Major Morgan. De'Angelo Barr jarred the ball free with Williams picking it up at the R-MC 8-yard line. While that turnover didn't result in R-MC points, the two did. Williams intercepted H-SC quarterback Alec Cobb at the Tigers' 40-yard line late in the first quarter, which the Yellow Jackets turned into the game's first points early in the second frame. Williams second interception helped put the game away as he came down with his third takeaway with 15-seconds left in the third quarter at the H-SC 35-yard line. Just two plays later, R-MC tacked on their final touchdown of the game for a 48-14 lead. For the season, Williams is tied for second in the ODAC with five interceptions. He's racked up 39 tackles including 31 solo stops.
