St. Aloysius football player Brennon Williams finished 2020 as one of the top players in Warren County. He is the first Vicksburg Daily News Offensive Player of the Year.

Williams finished the season with 1,151 all-purpose yards mostly while playing running back for the Flashes. He rushed for 722 yards and had the second most rushing yards in Warren County. He also had 11 touchdowns, two of them from kickoff returns against Cathedral and Washington high schools. Nine of his touchdowns came on the ground.

One of Williams’s best games this season was against Washington High School where he rushed for over 100 yards and scored three touchdowns to help the Flashes clinch a playoff spot.

Williams became a starter for the Flashes in 2018 as a sophomore under former coach Michael Fields, and he quickly became a star player. He helped his team reach the playoffs each season on the varsity level including this year under head coach Stacey Sizemore..

Williams was a profound football player on defense, but this year he also showed his offensive talents which led him to being named the VDN Offensive Player of the Year.

“I want to thank coach Sizemore and the rest of the coaching staff,” Williams said. “I also want to thank God and Coach Fields for turning me into the athlete I am today.”

“I thank my mom and all my friends for supporting me,” he added.

Williams is a resident of Utica, Mississippi, and travels to Vicksburg on a daily bases to shine at St. Aloysius in football and track.
