“Willy has been a huge part of Quaker Football for the past three years. As a three year starter on defense, Willy’s ability to play multiple positions allowed us to switch up our defense during his senior year. On offense, we knew we had a weapon that could run and catch while also providing a huge threat as punt returner. Against Mount Vernon this year, Willy caught a pass for a TD, he returned an interception for a TD, and he returned a punt for a TD. Willy had a great career as a Quaker and we are excited to see him continue to succeed at Capital University.” – Head Football Coach Mike Johnson
