Williams has been the difference for Mustangs

After not being able to play last season due to injury, Stevenson quarterback Daniel Williams showed just what kind of performance he is capable of. In an absolute blowout of FDU-Florham 54-15, Williams took over the game, throwing for a school record six touchdown passes while also throwing for 338 yards and one interception. Stevenson continues to show why they are ranked for the first time in school history, and Williams has been a major part of that.

Right from the start of the game, Williams was absolutely on fire. On the first drive, he completed a 36 yard pass downfield to wide receiver Devin Salisbury, and although the team did not score on that drive, he established the long ball right from the get go.

For the first touchdown of the game, Williams completed a 26 yard pass into the end zone to receiver Preston Addo. Addo finished the game with three of Williams’s TD passes. Along with the 26 yard end zone catch, he also snagged a pass on a crossing route and took it for a 20 yard TD, and he caught another long ball for a 49 yard TD. He finished with six catches for 150 yards and three TDs.

Reciver Devin Salisbury also had a terrific game, catching the other three of Williams’ TD passes. He had a really nice catch on a crossing route, and he was able to break a couple tackles and take it the distance for a 37 yard TD. He also had an incredible catch in the end zone for a 29 yard TD, and he caught a short pass for a six yard TD. Salisbury finished with 11 catches for 149 yards and three TDs.

Williams is able to make throws that a lot of other quarterbacks in Division III just cannot make. He is also a pitcher in baseball, and he has an absolute rocket arm. He is able to fit the ball into tight gaps and allow his receivers to make plays. He always puts the ball where only his receivers can catch it.

Williams also has incredible pocket awareness. He is not a runner, but he has the knack for being able to escape pressure and continue to keep his eyes downfield. He made a very nice play in the 3rd quarter, where he escaped a tackler, rolled to the outside, and fired a 20 yard pass downfield that resulted in a 1st down. He is very difficult to bring down, and he always seems to keep his eyes downfield, looking for someone to throw to.

With the high level that Williams is currently playing at and with Stevenson’s incredible defense, the team could easily find themselves moving up the ranks and becoming a major force in Division III football. Williams could end up being the difference maker for the team this year if he continues to make plays like this, and right now, this team looks better than it ever has in the past.
