If you haven't checked it out yet, you need to read the weekly article on our sports page from our NFL analyst Eric Williams', called Full Contact. His first post this week gives great background into how he made it to the NFL, and eventually to East Texas. He has a very likeable, easy-to-read writing style that is very entertaining.
As you already know, especially if you've read the article, Eric had a very productive 10-year NFL career with the Detroit Lions and Washington Redskins. He was an integral part of the Redskins Super Bowl XXVI win over the Buffalo Bills. If you ever run into him, check his hand. He's got the ring to prove it!
He is eager to bring his wealth of experience and knowledge to East Texas football players. He's willing to team with area high schools to offer an Advanced Defensive Line Techniques Camp. This isn't a camp where he trots out and gives an inspirational opening speech, then turns it over to someone else. These are intense mini-camps that he approaches like he approached his own football development. They involve film study, weight lifting programs, hands-on techniques, and even how to attract the attention of college recruiters. If you are a parent, player or coach and are interested in finding out costs and available dates, give him a holler.
