We know Daniel Williams is a talented football player. Now let’s get to know a little bit about Daniel Williams the man.

Plant City, FL — Earlier in the week Allison Koehler of wrote a very good piece on Tampa Bay Vipers wide receiver Daniel Williams. The article took a deep dive into the background of Williams the football player.

I wanted to take a different approach when I spoke with him. We’re aware of the talent that he possesses. But are you aware of his favorite players when he was growing up? Or what his first touchdown celebration might be?

After a long week of practice and numerous interviews throughout the week, I didn’t want to take too much of Williams’ time.  He was more than willing to take the time to speak with me, however. Even spending a few minutes after the interview to just chit chat. Hopefully later in the year we can go even deeper into Williams the person.

Williams is an avid Instagram user. You can see his page is mostly football, which just speaks to his dedication to his craft.

Week one star

In case you missed it, Williams had an early coming out party in week one. Even for what I was expecting. He caught six of his nine targets for 123 yards including two big plays, a 37-yard catch from Quinton Flowers and a 42-yard catch from Aaron Murray. His 123 receiving years is tops in the XFL.
