Albany High senior selected for prestigious

national all-star football game in Dallas

 

Albany High School senior Hezekiah Williamson has been selected as one of 80 student-athletes nationwide who will participate in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in December

 

Williamson, a running back and linebacker for the Falcons, was selected based on his performance at a summer football camp in South Carolina. His trip to Texas will include a tour of the magnificent new Cowboys Stadium. The game is scheduled for Dec. 30 and will be televised nationally on ESPNU.

 

Williamson (pictured at right in an interview with WNYT/TV-13 sports reporter Andrew Catalon on Oct. 18) will be recognized Nov. 1 as the Ch. 13 Dunkin' Donuts Athlete of the Week.

 

A three-year varsity player for Albany High, Williamson has scored two touchdowns this season – one rushing and one receiving. He also is a dynamic force on defense.

 

As an example of the caliber of student-athlete selected to play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, the MVP of the inaugural game in 2007 was Cam Newton, who went on to become the 2010 Heisman Trophy winner while leading Auburn University to the national championship. Newton was the first pick in this year’s NFL Draft and is the starting quarterback for the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. Current Dallas Cowboys star receiver Dez Bryant also played in the 2007 bowl, as did current NFL players Golden Tate (Seattle Seahawks) and Casey Matthews (Philadelphia Eagles).
