The Ellison Eagles 7-on-7 football team ended up in the semifinals of the highly competitive Lone Star Shootout at Belton on Saturday.
Ellison outside linebacker Joseph Williams wasn’t the least bit surprised.
“We were aware that there were a lot of great schools competing in that tournament,” said Williams, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound senior. “But our team came together as one. And once we work together as a unit, we feel we can’t be beat. Yes, we knew we were the underdogs, but we felt we showed what we could do.”
Williams stood out to the opposing coaches working at Belton: He was named to the Lone Star Tournament All-Defensive Team.
