While some players return to the UCF Football facilities for another fall camp, there are also freshmen going through their first set of practice sessions. It’s their first taste of major college football and being away from home.
One of UCF’s prized recruits would be Anthony Williams. The running back from nearby Altamonte Springs (Fla.) Lake Brantley selected UCF over offers from several programs such as Duke, Louisville, Florida and Miami. During a recent practice, it was obvious this young man put in the work to be ready for his first fall camp. Here's a photo of Williams during the 2020 season while he played for Lake Brantley.
Williams went from a 6’0”, 185-pound running back in the spring of his junior year to physically developing his body into a lean and muscular 215-pound running back. After checking the roster, indeed, that was Williams on the UCF practice field. He looked completely different during the UCF running back drills during this past Thursday’s football practice.
To learn more about how this transformation, as well as what Williams is like off the gridiron, Inside The Knights was fortunate enough to conduct an interview with someone that knows him quite well, his mother, Mrs. Angela Porter-Williams.
His mother took the time to discuss her situations such as her son’s recruitment, as well as what he’s like on and off the gridiron with Inside The Knights. Here’s the podcast with Mrs. Porter-Williams:
