North Caddo’s Williams makes college choice -- JSU

VIVIAN, Louisiana -- As one of the driving forces behind North Caddo’s run to three consecutive LHSAA Class 2A state basketball titles, Sumer Williams opted to wait a while before choosing a college.

She made that decision recently when she inked with Jackson State in a ceremony at the school.

“I went over there for a visit, watched them practice and I felt like it was a perfect fit for me,” Williams told The Times. “I like the campus, the coaches and what they were about as a program.”

The Times All-City selection and Times Best of Preps honoree averaged 15 points and 8 rebounds this past season for coach Sandra Dennis. Williams was also coached by Rickey Evans and Angela Channell, who was her counselor for four years.

“Sumer is a hard worker both on the court and in the classroom. She is a very determined young lady who has yet to reach her full potential athletically, so she has the chance to offer some depth in multiple positions,” Channell said. With a coaching staff similar to what she's experienced in high school and an opportunity to continue to develop as a player, she will be an asset in any position at Jackson State.”
