Within the blink of an eye an exciting basketball game between the East Austin Yellow Jackets and a group of talented Texas D-1 Ambassadors freshmen became an after thought. PG T.J. Williams the top lead guard in the Cen Tex/South Texas area went down hard under the basket, falling on his right arm. Everyone in the gym immediately knew it was not good.
He’s a tough kid, and never shed a tear, he just immediately uttered, “I broke it”. He was correct, as his father Tim Williams called me early last night and confirmed that T.J. suffered a clean break. A full recovery is expected in about 6 weeks. In a case of making lemonade out of lemons, expect Williams to invest his time in a cast using his left hand for ballhandling and shooting drills. He’ll return an even better player.
Look for him to have a huge impact pairing in the backcourt with 2011 G Deon Mitchell at Pflugerville High this coming fall. Best wishes T.J.
