Pioneer Athlete Spotlight on Trevion Williams
Trevion Williams

Williams has endured a lot of losing with his Red Devils football and basketball teams, but he still plays with passion and tries to set a positive example for his teammates. “I’m always described as a leader.

Players depend on me and I want to make everyone better, so they can play to their full potential.” That’s something appreciated by his football coach Donald James and basketball coach Ejon Felder. Senior Williams at 5-7 and 174 pounds plays cornerback and runningback for Mt. Diablo and has scored seven touchdowns and rushed for 750 yards this fall as the team broke a losing streak that went back to September of Williams’ freshman year. James says Williams “is more than a football player on the field.”

The team hosts Berean Christian this Friday for their homecoming game. When basketball season starts, he hopes to help the Red Devils to more success after they improved from one win in 49 games his freshman and sophomore years to nine last year. Felder expects his team to win at least 15 games this winter.

“Trevion has been a varsity player since his sophomore year and was one of two captains last year. Trevion has been the heart and soul of our basketball team since he took on the leadership role. He not only leads with his voice but mostly with his playing ability. His consistency in the classroom (3.0 gpa) and on the field or floor have made him one of the top student athletes on our campus. Trevion is a bright kid with a bright future at whatever he chooses to do in life.” Williams is shooting high for college as he gets ready to send out applications to Cal, UCLA and Duke, among many he plans on submitting.

The Pioneer congratulates Trevion and thanks Athlete Spotlight sponsors Dr. Laura Lacey & Dr. Christopher Ruzicka who have been serving the Clayton and Concord area for 25 years at Family Vision Care Optometry.
