Name: Isaiah Williams
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
This season my goals were more team oriented than personal and although we didn’t accomplish everything that we set out to do, I still feel like we accomplished what we came here to do overall as a class. We were able to turn things around as a program and get the program competing at the top of the conference. There were multiple times we were in a hole and had to fight back together to come out victorious regardless of if it was to win a game or take back control of what seemed to be a failing season. No matter the situation we had to fight for one another and never give up on each other. Being a leader on this team I had to keep myself together to be able to keep hope alive with my brothers so we could weather the storm and come out on top. During my time at Misericordia my personal growth was definitely more valuable and important than a personal goal that I could have set for any season because of the positive impact that it had on the men that I was able to go into battle with every single snap.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
Coaches and teammates would describe me as a man of actions kind of guy. I’m not the most hype or loudest in the room but my presence is felt and my work ethic never goes unnoticed. When I do speak people listen because if I’m saying something then it has to be important and definitely helpful to my teammates.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
When studying film I look at ways to improve my game and ways to win against my next opponent. I look at how guys are getting open against the DB’s that I am studying and how can I use what they’re doing and add it to my game.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
My ability to adapt to a situation and be great at it (position change, weather, etc). Playing in North East Pennsylvania you never know what you’re going to deal with weather wise so every practice and game day was kind of a mystery but I still had to go out grind and perform regardless. There’s also been a couple of times throughout my playing time that I had to learn a new position or skill that may not have been what I was used to but I took on the task at hand and made the best of every single situation I was given.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
I was invited to play in the Free Agent Football D3 Senior Classic, so I plan on playing one last game to showcase my abilities. From there I plan on staying consistent with my training and working out at local gyms and facilities in my area.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
My strengths and abilities are definitely the fight that I bring with my game, my work ethic and leadership. Off the field it didn’t hit me how much of an impact I had not only on my teammates by the way that I conduct myself and handle business. I also had a positive effect on the community and people around me which gave me more confidence to grow my role as a leader.. After playing my final game at Misericordia the feedback from my teammates, parents, and staff made me feel like my time here was well spent and impacted the people around me more than I could have ever imagined.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
Anyone looking for a dependable, hard working, talented WR/Athlete that’s going to come in and go to war for the guys around him, I’m your guy!
