Remembering Coach Williams

The breakthrough banner for the Pocahontas Redskins gives a quote from their coach Dave Williams prior to Friday’s playoff game at Lonoke. Williams did not coach this season because of illness. He died after a short bout with cancer on Tuesday, Nov. 12. Williams coached the Carlisle Bison before moving to Pocahontas in 1981. He was one of the mentor’s of former Carlisle coach Scott Waymire, who led the Bison to 71 wins in seven season at Carlisle before becoming Trumann’s coach this season. (Photo by Scott Ward)
