Manitoba lineman commits to NCAA’s North Dakota Fighting Sioux

Zack Williams is North Dakota bound.

Recently, the 6’6, 260 pound offensive lineman from Winnipeg, Manitoba verbally committed to NCAA Division 1 team, North Dakota Fighting Sioux for the 2015 season.

“Recruit Ready helped me to get more exposure and asked if I’d like to go to the University of North Dakota Camp and a National Underclassmen Combine,” recalled Williams, who plays guard/tackle.  I’ve talked to many schools out there; in total 17 CIS schools.”

Ultimately, there were several reasons why Williams decided on the Sioux.

“One of those reasons would be the facility and the place,” explained Williams of his decision.  “It’s a great area, very beautiful and not too far from home.”

“It’s also division 1 football, with a great coaching staff and they’re trying to get there program bigger and better all the time! They are very serious about school, which they should be. It’s a big deal, that’s why it’s called “Student-Athlete” and notice how student comes first, because that’s the most important part; they want to help you out to get a degree. After football, I’m going to have to rely on something so that’s very important.  I think I’ll be a good fit to North Dakota as I’ll always put in a full effort day by day, work to be the best on the field, in the weight room and most importantly in the classroom.”

The offensive lineman has played for the Murdoch MacKay Clansmen of the Winnipeg High School Football League (WHSFL) as well as the Transcona Nationals.

With his commitment, there are several individuals that Williams credits to bring him to this juncture in his gridiron career.

“I’d like to thank Coach Bochen, who I’ve been coached by for the past two years,” expressed the Manitoba lineman.  “I know he’s changed my game, made me a way better football player, push guys to their limits and helps them reach their goals!”

“I’d also like to thank my family and friends because they’re also a huge impact on my life, especially my Mom and Dad.”
