Running back Brandon Williams (Brookshire, Texas/Royal) has had a whirlwind type of week. On Monday, the 6-foot-1, 196-pound football and track star switched his pledge from Baylor to Oklahoma, and on Thursday night he accepted an invitation to play in the 2011 Under Armour All-America Game.

The prestigious honor is not only big for Williams, but for the Brookshire Royal community, which hasn't been known for producing big-time, athletic talents.

"I want to set a good example in our community. Our community isn't really known for great athletes and I want to open doors for the other children and my teammates," Williams said.
