Williams had a revelation while attending his nephew's Pop Warner football game this past summer.
"The kids were using this 3-4 defense and then it just hit me, I thought if I use this 3-4 that gives me one more linebacker to blitz with!"
The smile on his face was undeniable. "These kids were using it all wrong though. That coach had to go. I gave him a remember me shot in the parking lot after the game and the next day I took over, for free of course. This is for the kids."
It took no time at all for the kids to grasp. By the first game under Williams they were routinely sending eight defenders at the opposing quarterback.
"It was easy," said safety Jimmy Harris. "Coach just told us not to think and to just run at the quarterback."
Williams said he truly enjoyed his experience teaching the kids and he found their motivation pretty easily.
"The kids loved the Power Point presentations I made. And they really appreciated the time and effort that went into them."
He laughed as he explained his key to success, "Motivating these kids cost me a fortune! They got candy if they made a kid cry, ice cream if they got one to wet himself, and McDonald's if a kid was carried off the field by his mommy."
His crowning moment as a leader of young men came when he lead his team to a county title.
"We kicked some butt that day. Let's just say that the opposing quarterback must've got a fortune from the tooth fairy that night!"
Unfortunately, Williams' team had their title forfeited due to excessive taunting and poor sportsmanship.
Williams is on record saying he relishes the opportunity to feature Roman Harper as the centerpiece of his blitz-heavy 3-4 scheme. He intends to move Harper to free safety to fill the ball-hawking role the Saints most desperately need.
