Football standout caps collegiate career

— Wittenberg University football standout and former Plainfield Quaker Sean Williams recently put the finishing touches on a stellar collegiate career, but not before etching his name in the hallowed program’s record books.

Williams was a three-year starting kicker and four-year letter winner for the Tigers, who lost in the second round of the 2012 NCAA Division III Tournament to Hobart College. Wittenberg punched its ticket to the postseason competition by winning a share of the North Coast Athletic Conference title for the 11th time since joining the league in 1989 and the third time in four years.

Wittenberg finished with records of 10-2 overall and 6-1 in the NCAC in 2012, and the Tigers posted a record of 40-6 over the course of the last four years.

Williams led the Tigers in scoring with a record-breaking 88 points by kicking in 2012, including 18 points in two playoff games. In a 52-38 win over Heidelberg in the first round, Williams tied the school record of 14 kicking points in a game.

He finished his career with 244 points, just five short of the school record and third in program history. Williams also holds school records for consecutive field goals (19) and extra points (50), in addition to career field goals (36).

Finally, he holds the school record for career field goal percentage (81.8 percent, 36 of 44) and PAT percentage (96.5 percent, 137 of 142).

He is the third Williams brother to play football at Wittenberg. Brother Scott was a special teams standout for the Tigers between 2003 and ‘06, followed by Patrick, who was a record-breaking wide receiver from 2006-09. Patrick was also a four-year starting outfielder for the Tigers’ baseball team, and ranks in the top 10 in numerous season and career offensive records.

Scott, Patrick, and Sean are the sons of Joan and Dan Williams of Plainfield. Notably, Joan and Dan were road warriors for nearly a decade, missing just one Wittenberg football game.
