Texas College Player Declares For NFL Draft

It was a big day at Texas College. Steers defensive lineman Michael Williams announced he is forgoing his senior season and declaring for the 2006 NFL Draft. The Lindale native was first team all-conference, and helped lead the Steers to the Central State Football League conference championship.

"It feels good," Williams said. "It's always been a dream of mine, even with my family, we've always thought just having the opportunityy would be a nice thing to do. I've always had the love for the tradition in East Texas and football is big in East Texas and I'm just happy to be a part of it."

Williams played two seasons at the University of Texas, before transferring to Texas College for the 2005 season. Williams played in ten games for the Steers, compiling 38 unassisted tackles, 34 assisted tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss (115.2 yds), 5.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. The Texas College owned the top rated defense in the conference.
