Best quote from Williams' 2020 season:

"I just keep working each and every day, never take a day off. (It) started in the offseason with preparation, film study, and just working out as much as I could, with Covid and all that. But it has just been a constant progression of me getting better. That is just what I do. I never, never tried to, you know, digress. I just continue to progress each and every week. And I don't do a lot of talking. I just do it on the field."
