Linebacker Treyvon Williams was all over the field against Indiana last week.

Williams proved that he’s more than capable of being a force for the Golden Panthers.

Williams only played in four games in 2015 after suffering a season-ending injury. The Miami native registered 28 tackles (17 solo) during that brief amount of time.

In his first game back, he tallied 13 tackles (nine solo) which happens to lead all Conference USA players after one week.

Williams may not be the biggest linebacker at 5’11, but he is extremely athletic.

“On the second row, their defense, [Vontarious West and [Treyvon] Williams both are rugged kids,” offensive coordinator Walt Bell said. “They’re not your prototypical big, slow, big west MIKE’s. They run, they hit, they’re rugged kids and they’re going to make plays all over the place. On the first and second level defense, I think the biggest issue is going to be handling that movement.”

 Williams is arguably the most talented player on Florida International’s defense and Maryland’s offensive line will need to know where he is at all times.
