EJ goes up strong against the CBC defense.

EJ Williams, senior guard, may not look like one of the main contributors to the team on the stat sheet, but his relentless defense and consistent hustle plays has made him an invaluable asset to the team.

At 6’1, Williams averages 4.4 points 4.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists and has been starting for the past three seasons.

Despite his smaller size, Williams’ athletic rebounding skills have led to many second chance points for the Cats. For example, in the 64-30 win over Chaminade, he secured a total of ten rebounds over players much taller than him.

Williams has had three games this season with exactly 11 points, his highest total all year, yet he is one of the foundational pieces for the most successful team in Westminster history.

Anyone who watches a game can clearly see the passion that Williams has for the team, as he is constantly diving for loose balls and sacrificing his body for every rebound. As a result, he has inspired his teammates around him to put in the same amount of effort while keeping a positive attitude.

“He’s definitely the centerpiece of our team, and there is a significant difference when he is out of the game,” said Jack Lemp, senior guard.

Not only does Williams greatly impact the team on the floor, but he also displays uncommon attributes off the court. Those who know him would describe him as one of the nicest and most respectful people that they know, which has translated into a great deal of coachability toward Dale Ribble, head coach.

The Wildcat community will look forward to watching Williams and the boys basketball team finish out the regular season and work their way towards a state championship.
