Dwight Williams has not been tested much this season but last Friday night in an important playoff game the 2014 linebacker from Gardena (Calif.) Serra came through in a big way.
The 6-foot-1, 212-pound four-star prospect had two interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, as Serra defeated West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade.
"I was just feeling it," Williams said.

"Everything was going right. I had a chance to make a few plays. The rest of the season I haven't really been getting tested when they're throwing the ball. I didn't really get any action. This game gave me some action and I took advantage of it."
What was also important to Williams is that Oregon assistant coach Don Pellum was on the sidelines and had to notice the four-star's success. A lot of top prospects including Terrell Newby and Adoree' Jackson were on the field but Williams really stepped it up.
The Ducks have not reached out to Williams since that game but the Serra standout said an offer from them would be big.
"It would be great," Williams said. "It's Oregon, I like Oregon a lot and I think I can fit in their system well over there."
Earlier in the season, West Hills Chaminade defeated Serra, 28-20, but the defense really stepped up in the game and played better and now Williams' team moves on to play Edison this weekend at Orange Coast College.
"It means a lot," Williams said.
So far, the 2014 prospect has landed offers from Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, Oregon State and UCLA. Teams from across the country continue to show interest.
