Have you ever wondered how one individual can change the game by raising the bar to new heights? This month's featured athlete is doing just that.
Cecil Williams II of Laguna Creek High School is one of the most well rounded young men I've ever met. It doesn't surprise me that Williams has committed to Harvard University to pursue a degree in neuroscience and play football.
His resume includes football, baseball, basketball, piano, fishing, and I've also seen him on the track. Most importantly, Williams carries a 4.3 grade-point average and is involved in his school's IB program.
The eldest of four children, he leads by example. He and his siblings (Kylah, Jacob and Marina) are fluent in Spanish and are gifted on the piano. And his advice to them, "In school and everything you do, try to do your best to put yourself in the best possible position to be successful."
Williams' success is inevitable. His parents, Cecil and Karen, have given him the tools for success and instilled in him values and the importance of faith in God.
"My God is my inspiration, my rock, and my salvation," Williams said. "Inspiration also comes from my parents and my community who have raised me. I am only a reflection of my village."
This scholar athlete surrounds himself with people who share the same values as he; good grades, leadership, and humility. And at the prestigious Harvard University, he will attend school and play football with others who are striving to be doctors, lawyers, engineers, and businessmen.
Student athletes like Williams are a true example of determination. We look forward to staying in touch with the future Neurosurgeon.
