"I can play anything"

"I can play anything"

Running back Chris Williams is getting ready for another exciting year of football for the Tigers of Eufaula. The East Alabama school went undefeated in their regular season and marched through the play-offs before facing Athens in the championship game. The Tigers came up short 10-7.

The 1,000 yard rusher talks about his recruitment.

"I have interest from Alabama, Auburn and Southern Miss," Chris Williams said from Eufaula, (Ala.).

The three-year starter says an unofficial visit down the road to Auburn is planned in the near future.

When asked of his off-season work-out, the coach Dan Klages' protégé' gave a well-coached answer.

"I'm working on everything," Williams responded. "You have to work on everything. I like speed, but you have to work on everything."

We asked what it was like to be a part of coach Klages' option offense at Eufaula.

"It's a great chance to run the ball. It's great. We are going to throw the ball more this year and balance everything out," he said.

"I think our offense prepares you more for college than the spread. If you can play this offense, then you can play. We throw the ball a lot too though. In our games last year we didn't have to throw the ball that much."

Eufaula outscored opponents 351-101 during the regular season in 2006.

"Having Jerrel [Jernigan] at quarterback and Shyrone Parker at fullback, and I was the tailback--they didn't know what was going on. They couldn't defend it. We have a lot of fun practicing it too," Williams recounted.

When asked of favorites, "I would love to go to Florida State," he said. "I like their tradition. They have a lot of winning seasons. Back in the day, they have had a lot of great players that have played there. I like the way they run their offense too."

Williams plays more stout than his 5-10, 190-pound status seems to suggest.

"I can play anything," he said. "I can see myself playing anywhere. For real. I have the potential to grow and get as big as I want to get. I can play anything. I can do it."

Williams has some talented teammates this year including defensive end Courtney Upshaw and linebacker Satero Hardy.
