SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
NORFOLK, Va. – Bethune-Cookman University football student-athlete Quentin Williams registered two career-highs over the weekend, and has been named this week’s Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Offensive Player of the Week.
The announcement came from the MEAC Office on Monday in Norfolk, Va.
Williams, a 6-0, 190 senior quarterback from Tampa, helped No. 14 Bethune-Cookman erase a 27-20 fourth quarter deficit against Florida Tech of Melbourne. On the afternoon, he contributed on three of B-CU’s five touchdowns, including a game-winning 67-yard strike to Frank Brown late in the fourth quarter, allowing B-CU to take a 34-27 lead over the Panthers.
Game on Saturday
Overall, Williams connected for a career-high tying 16 completions on 28 attempts, and registered a career-high 222 yards through the air along with two passing touchdowns – both to sophomore receiver Frank Brown.
He also scampered for a rushing touchdown (tying the game midway through the fourth quarter at 27-all), capping 15 rushing attempts for 31 yards.
This is Williams’ first Offensive Player of the Week award in 2014, as well as the first of its kind for any Wildcats performer.
