Mustangs commits have admiration for team’s coaches

Mustangs welcome a local commit and an Ontario commit to their 2019 class.

Offensive lineman Matt Adams from London South Collegiate is quite familiar with his new school, but perhaps he can show cornerback Matt Williams from Holy Names Catholic High School around the Western Mustangs.

Hailing from London, Ontario, Matt Adams is no stranger to the university. “I have spent so much time at Western because of the Junior Mustangs,” he said. “I have spent so much time with the coaches and at the facility. It is also home, so I don’t have to move away from my family.”

He added that, “I like all the coaches a lot and I have a pretty good relationship with most of them. I would like to add on to my relationships and form new ones in my coming years.”

In his career, the 6’5, 320lbs lineman has suited up for the South Lions (TVRA), London Jr. Mustangs (OPFL), the Forest City Thunderbirds (OFC) and the LMFA Rams. He has won three championships with the Lions. He is interested in taking business.

Even though Matt Williams will be leaving his hometown of Windsor, Ontario, it shouldn’t take him long to adjust to London, Ontario. “I chose Western because of the winning atmosphere there. I love everything about the school and the town,” Williams said. “I love the coaching staff at Western and how much effort they put into getting stuff done to win.”

Williams has been playing football for eight years. In that time, he has as suited up for the Holy Names Knights (WECSSAA) and the Essex Ravens (OPFL). He helped the Knights win a Western Bowl at the 2017 OFSAA Championships. He was also the team’s defensive player of the team that year. He is a two-time 1st-team all-city player in 2016 and 2017. Williams, who is 6’2, 185lbs, has also participated in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge.
