JACKSON, Mississippi -- When it comes to performing on the field, few Jackson State players have done better than receiver Daniel Williams the past two seasons. The senior receiver has caught 127 passes for 1,806 yards and 16 touchdowns since the start of the 2014 season, which has turned him into one of the SWAC's marquee players.
He's a stellar performer, but first-year coach Tony Hughes and Tigers offensive coordinator Chad Germany asked Williams to play an additional role.
"Coach Hughes and coach Germany wanted me to be a leader since Day 1," Williams said. "And I took on that role."
Now Williams is leading by example on the field, while taking some of JSU's younger receivers under his wing.
