Former Wildcat kicker breaks record, gets recognition in first college game
RH Britton Williams POTW

Just a few months ago, Britton Williams graduated from Richmond Hill High School.

He competed on the Wildcats football team as a kicker, making 95 percent of his extra points over the years and was ranked as a two-star kicker and picked up all-state, all-region honors.

Williams committed and signed his letter of intent with Georgia Southern to play football in December.

He made his debut in the Eagles’ first game of the 2021 season where they defeated Gardner-Webb 30-25 at Paulson Stadium.

The freshman would post a stat line of 3-3 field goals, 3-3 extra points, and two touchbacks.

Williams’ first field goal would go for 49 yards, the longest first make for an Eagles’ kicker in program history.

He would even add a tackle to his Saturday performance.

The Richmond Hill alumni’s efforts would earn him the Sun Belt Conference’s Special Teams Player of the Week.

Williams’ next game with the Eagles will be at Florida Atlantic on Sept. 11.
