Junior running back Jatavion Willams

Junior running back Jatavion Willams was recently aired on the savannah morning news for his new path from a student manager to a student athlete of Savannah States football team.

Jatavion Williams, 20 knew all along what his plans were, but he just needed to figure out how to put everything into play. Although as a young child he claimed he wants the be a doctor, recently during college he has narrowed his studies down to orthopedic surgeon while he participated in procedures with his Macon native grandaddy.

What gives William’s motivation was him hearing his grandaddy make complaints about his joints from them doing backbreaking jobs painting and rebuilding houses. That’s when Williams decided that he wants to be able to help the elderly still be mobile and able to participate in the thing that they are passionate about with out worrying about their age catching up with them. He believes that once people can’t move how they want it takes a lot away from them.

Although William didn’t want to end his football career in high school, there were no colleges interested until the head coach of SSU football athletics decided to make him an unusual offer even with a full roster for that 2019 season.
