Devonte Williams Grabs ECAC Honors


DANBURY, Conn. – Stevenson University senior running back Devonte Williams was named the ECAC/Corvias Division III South football Offensive Player of the Week on Tuesday afternoon.  Earlier in the week, Williams collected the same honor from the Middle Atlantic Conference.

Williams rushed for 203 yards and a pair of touchdowns as Stevenson improved to 8-0 (7-0 MAC) and extended its win streak to 10 games dating back to last season.  He carried 28 times and both of his touchdown runs were for 32 yards as he averaged 7.3 yards per carry.  Williams also blocked a punt on special teams in the victory.

This season, Williams has carried 74 times for 382 yards, while also catching seven passes for 98 yards and a touchdown.

Ranked No. 12 in the AFCA Division III poll and No. 14 in the Top 25, Stevenson returns home Saturday when it hosts Wilkes University in a 1:00 contest at Mustang Stadium.  The Mustangs can wrap up the MAC championship and NCAA automatic berth with a win over the Colonels.
