New Miami Dolphin wide receiver Brandon Marshall first made a name for himself in Florida where he was a three sport stud in high school. Marshall then went on to establish himself as the " Beast" at Central Florida. Marshall's nephew, Rayshon Williams of Denver Mullen High School, at 6-1 190 pounds, may not, as of yet, have beast like proportions, but he has established himself as one of the top big play threats in Colorado football. Over the past two seasons Williams has been a key piece on a Mullen team that has won back to back 5A football titles. Last season, Williams showed his knack for the end zone as he scored as a runner, receiver and returner. As a receiver Williams had 43 catches and nine scores. Running the ball Williams had nine touches, scoring three times and averaging over 12 yards a carry. Multiple times last year, Williams' knack for big plays, especially as a returner, opened up games for his Mustang team.
Williams' skills have not gone unnoticed as the playmaker holds multiple DI offers with Minnesota, Colorado, Colorado State, Utah and Kansas State all on board. Recently Williams was given the opportunity to continue a family tradition with an offer from the University of Central Florida. Last season the Knights went 8-5 making an appearance in the St. Petersburg Bowl.
Williams, along with his Mullen teammates are already deep in preparation in an attempt to defend their back to back 5A titles. If Mullen can manage a three-peat Williams will surely play a key role.
