Player of the Week: Jordan Williams

Jordan Williams

Jordan Williams

Jordan Williams changed positions and is calmly learning the rules, techniques and mechanics of being a football quarterback.

The Laker junior appears to be getting a handle on the job as he made several strong runs and showed good timing on pitches to lead his club to a Homecoming victory over Gray-New Gloucester.

“Jordan is working hard to learn the system and he runs it how it is designed. He is a talented young man who provides an athletic and physical presence on the field, both on offense and defense,” Lake Region Coach Brian Jahna said. “He has started to take a positive leadership role on the team and has shown great maturity in his focus on providing a positive team atmosphere.”

Coach Jahna added that Williams has been willing to put in extra time before and after practice to increase his learning curve.

“Jordan is a consistently positive and optimistic student-athlete,” the coach said.

In recognition of his strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Jordan is this week’s Boosters and Hancock Lumber “Player of the Week.” Each week, a Lake Region athlete is recognized for his/her dedication (does more than what is asked), work ethic, coachability and academic good standing. Recipients receive a specially-designed T-shirt, sponsored by Hancock Lumber.
