EYOTA, Minn. (KTTC) – There are few certainties in sports, but this is one of them — you can’t teach size. Dover-Eyota wing Brady Williams towers at 6-foot-8, but moves with the coordination and agility of a player much smaller. Eagles Head Coach Tim Mayer knows just how unique his junior star is.
“He’s one of those once in lifetime players,” Mayer said. “He can play any position on the floor. We’ve asked him to play a little point guard the last few years, this year he’s playing more of a wing. We get him inside, too.”
Williams leads the Three Rivers Conference in scoring at 21 points per game. He also grabs 10 rebonds per game, while chipping in 5 assists. DE is 14-5, and Williams wants to do something his school hasn’t done since 2008.
“My goals are to win out, get a good seed in the section tournament, and go far in there,” said Williams. “We haven’t won a game in the section tournament for a while, so it’d be really nice to go far.”
The 6-8 swingman is also a standout on the football field, with multiple Division I schools recruiting him to play quarterback. This past fall, Williams passed for more than 2,500 yards and 22 touchdowns. The Eagles’ football success is helping them on the hardwood.
“We wanted to pick up right where we left off for football, or even go farther,” Williams said. “So, it’s helped a lot.
Collegiately, Williams could play either football or basketball at the Division I level. But which way is he leaning?
