Personal Life

According to New Iberia High School coach Ryan Antoine, Derek Williams is the rock his program relies on. “He's our All-American,” Antoine said. “Our leader in the secondary. We rely on him a lot for the defense, and he is the one who will step up and get it done for us.” Antoine says Williams is the type of player that leads by example. “He is a kid that came in here and worked his tail off,” the coach said. “He has the measurables and has the ability to be one of the greats to come out of Westgate. He has great genetics. He can play either safety spot and has a knack to get to the ball.” Williams has been starting since his freshman year in 2019 and followed that up with strong sophomore and junior seasons in which he really showed no real weaknesses in his game. “He is a student of the game,” Antoine said. “He’s been challenged a lot going against Division I talent every day at practice since his freshman year. He goes out there and makes plays and makes others better around him.”

Derek Williams is a big-framed versatile safety who excels as a physical cover down defender to go with strong instincts, similar to what we saw from former Georgia star Lewis Cine. Williams is shorter than Cine at the same stage.
