Georgetown Prep simply had no answer for Bishop McNamara standout Ramar Williams.
The dynamic sophomore quarterback and defensive back accounted for five touchdowns on Sept. 6 in McNamara’s 34-9 road victory over Georgetown Prep in a battle of non-conference rivals.
When a reporter asked Williams about his performance he replied: “I don’t really tend to keep up with the stats. I let y’all handle that. Y’all do a pretty good job with that. I just come out here and play smart football.”
McNamara, who competes in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference, picked up their second win of the season while Georgetown Prep, a member of the Interstate Athletic Conference, fell to 1-1.
On the game’s opening possession, Williams led the Mustangs down the field 61 yards before scoring on a quarterback keeper from four yards out.
Later in the first quarter, Williams connected with classmate Camari Murray on an eight-yard touchdown to give the Mustangs a 14-0 advantage.
Williams found senior wideout Jordan Crockett on a 24-yard touchdown in the second period and connected with Murray on a 24-yard score in the third period.
Williams displayed his defensive prowess in the fourth quarter by intercepting Georgetown Prep quarterback Corey Howard’s pass and returning it 82 yards for a score to seal the Mustangs’ win and help the Forestville private school improve to 2-0.
Williams finished 17-of-27 for 275 yards and three touchdowns through the air and rushed for 82 yards on 15 carries and another score.
“He’s all over the field,” McNamara first-year head coach Keith Goganious said. “The kid plays great football. He plays within the scheme we ask him to play with. We try to create our offense around his abilities and what the guys can do so he’s doing what he’s naturally gifted to do.”
