New York, NY – Austin Peay State University defensive end Jaison Williams has been tabbed as an Associated Press FCS Second-Team All-American, announced on Tuesday morning.
The Trussville, AL native turned his sophomore season into a breakout campaign.
Williams finished the year with a team-high 9.5 sacks – good for second in the Ohio Valley Conference – and 11.5 tackles for loss.
Williams started all 12 games for a much-improved Governors defense, forcing a club-high four fumbles.
He concluded the 2017 season with 44 tackles and 13 quarterback hurries.
A finalist for the Buck Buchanan Award – given to the nation’s top defensive player – Williams was selected as a First-Team All-OVC defensive lineman in November.
