“Honestly, defenses don’t even really mention me,” Williams said. “I’m still kind of in the background. “But, hey, I’ll go with it. I’ll take it.”

Williams certainly warrants plenty of attention, especially after the show he put on Friday, Sept. 6.

Lincoln-Way East hadn’t lost a game since 2016.

If you have been to a Lincoln-Way East football game over the last several years, you have likely heard the voices of Richard Anderson, Bill Pradzinski and Thomas Trojniar. 

They are the three octogenarians who are consistently leading cheers from the stands. The ones yelling, ‘Who let the dogs out?’ after a big play by the Griffins.
