Monmouth offers Central QB Cody Williams
By Brendan Hall
Per his father Rich, Springfield Central Class of 2014 quarterback Cody Williams received his first Division 1 FCS scholarship today, from Monmouth University (N.J.).
In 11 games last year, the 6-foot-3, 170-pound Williams completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,797 yards, with 20 touchdowns to just five interceptions. He also added 187 yards and five scores on the ground, as the Golden Eagles went 12-1 and captured the MIAA Division 1 West Super Bowl Championship.
Williams is considered one of the top quarterback prospects in the Bay State. He has been seeing varying degrees of interest from Division 1 programs across the Northeast, including Boston College, UMass, UConn, Duke, Colgate, Fordham and Rutgers.
