Her article, titled “Mr. Excitement” encourages players to take advantage of SWAC football shift to spring, focuses on former GSU running back turned NFL star, Martez Carter, or “Mr. Excitement.”

Carter used his down time from the pandemic to visit GSU, encouraging the current running backs and giving them tips to succeed on the field.

Williams was there to cover it, writing a detailed and informative article that garnered the attention of the Louisiana Press Association.

We at KTVE/KARD offer her a hearty congratulations and are very proud to have her here with us, putting her writing skills to good use daily, bringing you all the news from the ArkLaMiss!
