501 Football Team 2023: Kade Williams – Conway Christian

The Conway Christian Eagles bounced back in a big way in 2022, finishing 7-3 in the regular season and fighting their way back into the 2A playoffs. Kade Williams’ leadership and performance in the defensive secondary played a big part in the team’s return to success.

“Kade is extremely intelligent,” Conway Christian Coach Justin Kramer said. “He’s consistent and always in position to make plays. He has a servant’s heart. This year, I expect Kade to do what he has always done — be where he is supposed to be and lead our secondary. He started at safety last year and was a key member of one of the best statistical secondaries we have had at CCS. He was near the top of every statistical category, from tackles to interceptions.”

Williams’ production in his junior campaign earned him All-Conference honors and the Marvin Delph Award. In his senior season, Williams plans to leave it all on the field.

“I’ve been playing the game my whole life … I come back to the game every year because of the brotherhood of the team,” Williams said. “We want to make a deep playoff run, and to achieve this, our team has been working hard in the weight room. My only personal goal is to play as best as I can and honor God on the field.”

Williams also competes in baseball and track for the Eagles. He’s a member of Drama Club, Quiz Bowl and Future Business Leaders of America.
