The Shasta College passing game has received a boost in recent weeks thanks to Cameron Williams, a freshman wide out from Indianapolis.
Williams impressed with his talents for the third straight week, hauling in five passes for 118 yards in last week’s 38-15 loss to Sierra College on Saturday. His efforts led to him earning Redding Rancheria Player of the Game honors.
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound Williams was the first Knight to crack 100 yards receiving in a game this season and his five receptions tied a single-game team-high for 2021, dating back to Jayden Gordon’s five catches against Chabot.
The previous two weeks, Williams caught a pair of touchdowns each against American River and College of the Siskiyous. This week, he upped his game. He had three catches in the first half and a 63-yard reception on a halfback pass from Gordon for the Knights’ longest pass play of the season. That reception set up a 2-yard Tyler Boston touchdown two plays later. He added a full extension diving grab for a 34-yard gain on the next possession to put him over the century mark in receiving.
On the year, Williams’ four receiving touchdowns and 274 receiving yards leads the Knights and his 15 catches is one shy of Gordon’s team-best 16 despite playing only six of Shasta’s seven games.
