Pine High School’s Jaheim Williams
Pine’s Jaheim Williams is a two-sport athlete. The senior plays football and runs track.
In football, Williams plays mainly fullback, but Pine coach Bradley Seal said he can play pretty much anywhere.
“Our coaches, we view Jaheim as the total football player,” Seal said. “He can play pretty much any position on the field. He has played every offensive skill (position) — quarterback, running back, wing and receiver. Defense — corner, outside/inside linebacker, safety — he knows what to do at every position and he can play any position.”
In football last year, Williams was a second-team all-district defensive back and an all-district honorable mention running back.
In track, Williams runs the 400 meters and is on the 4×200 relay team.
Williams has reached the regionals in both.
