Dutch Fork’s Antonio Williams named player of the year

Dutch Fork High School senior wide receiver Antonio Williams has been named the 2021 Mr. Richland County High School Football Player of the Year.

The award is presented annually by the Richland County Recreation Commission to the top varsity high school senior football player in Richland County. The award takes into account athletic and academic excellence along with community involvement, character and intellect. Williams will receive a $2,000 scholarship.

Williams is a 4-star prospect who signed with Clemson and had offers from South Carolina, Ole Miss and Auburn among other schools.

“This is well deserved as Antonio never takes a day off on the field or in the classroom,” said Dutch Fork High School Principal Dr. Gerald Gary. “The Dutch Fork community celebrates with Antonio and his family on this outstanding accomplishment.”
