West Sacramento, CA - The River City Gators announced the signing former California State University - San Diego wide receiver, Wesley Williams today. The signing officially took place on Wednesday night at 8:30pm on the Gators' practice field. Born in Sacramento, Williams grew up in Fairfield, played at San Joaquin Delta College, before initially choosing to attend Purdue University. Circumstances caused him to sign on and play for the San Diego State Aztecs; however, sources say he was recruited by the University of Louisville (Kentucky), the University of Colorado, and Auburn (Alabama).
River City Gators Head Coach, Charlie Ruiz says, "From a position standpoint, Williams solidifies the receiving corps and takes it to an unmatched level. He’s a class act, and he’s easy to deal with. He’ll fit in with the majority of the core of our team, and he’s anxious to get on the field. We’re anxious too!" Furthermore, Ruiz says, "He’s 6’4” and 225 lbs, wait until you see him! He had a free agent tryout with the San Diego Chargers a couple of years ago, and he also spent one summer working the camp of the San Francisco 49ers. He was interested in playing for the Gators last year, but the rosters were locked."
River City Gators Co-Owner, and NCFL Co-Founder, Jason Kang, says "Wes is a nice guy. He’s respectful. He’s everything you want in a football player. He’s going to be a great addition to this team both on and off the field. Adding him to the group including Paris [Warren], Camron [Mbewa], Kyle Providence, and Steve Dickinson, we’ve got the best wide receiver corps in the league, and likely in all of minor league football. You’d be hard pressed to find another unit this deep. " In terms of the NCFL, "this means more legitimate players are coming through our doors. We’re moving away from weekend warriors and recreational players. We’re developing into a springboard for people who are committed to developing themselves. Players like Wes live, breathe, and die for football. That’s the kind of commitment we want.."
The NCFL is the nation's premier minor league football conference. With players having moved on to the AFL and AIFA, and others attending NFL and UFL camps in the past, the league is highly competitive. In fact, the league's top two teams, the Northbay Rattlers and the Pacifica Islanders, placed first and second at the 2009 minor league national championships in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Gators next game is Saturday, May 8th, at River City Stadium in West Sacramento. Kickoff is scheduled for 6pm. The Gators have announced a special offer exclusively available through Sacramento Press. A "50% Off" coupon is included below.
