All-state linebacker Billy Williams of Gillette, Wyo., has signed a letter of intent to continue his playing days at Rocky Mountain College in the fall.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Williams was an all-state player for Campbell County High School last season and the co-defensive player of the year in the state's 4A ranks.

He was also selected to the Casper Star-Tribune's Super 25 team.

"He's just a hard-nosed, downhill, likes-to-hit-anything-that-moves kind of guy," Rocky coach Brian Armstrong said. "He's got a big frame on him and he's going to get, I think, a lot bigger as he develops. We're just excited to get him here."

Williams was in on 57 tackles for the Camels last season -- with 10 of them for losses. He also had two sacks and one interception.

For his prep career, he had 178 tackles, with 14 of them for losses. Williams also had three interceptions.

"He's kind of a throwback," Armstrong said. "He plays football the way it was meant to be played back in the day. He just loves the game of football. Loves everything about it."
