Fort Hays State lost its top three of its top four receivers from last season, but the Tigers seem to have found a new top target. Junior Ed Williams caught four touchdowns in Saturdays Spring Football game and made a number of spectacular catches.
“He’s my go to guy right now,” said quarterback Treveon Albert.
Williams, who has missed much of the spring because he is also a member of the FHSU track team, decided to skip this weekend’s meet in Wichita and participate in the spring game instead.
“We’ve got KU relays next week,” said Williams. “The spring game was pretty important to us. I felt like coming into my senior year just being on the same communication with my quarterback would have been nice. So that’s pretty much what brought me out here today.”
Thanks to large part to Williams, to offense pretty much stole the show.
“Overall I really think our offense came out and performed on a high level today,” said head coach Chris Brown. “You know defensively we strive to get three turnovers practice, I don’t know if we got one today.”
The Tigers did get one, a late INT thrown by back-up QB Edin Kovac.
Fort Hays State will now break until the fall, though they hope to be active this summer, because with a 12 game schedule of all conference games, the season schedule will be tough.
“We gotta work harder, we gotta watch film more, we gotta do everything more than we did last year,” said Albert.
