Just a couple weeks ago Ocoee standout Dexter Rentz who had already committed to Louisville was shot and killed in Orlando, Florida by a drive-by shooter. This past weekend another standout football player (Antuan Williams) from Florida was gunned down.
Antuan Williams the 18 year old standout football player from Ribault was shot and killed and three others were injured, according to reports. The shooter reportedly shot around 50 rounds at the four men.

Police said three other men in their 20′s were also shot but are expected to survive. Police are searching for a white Kia sedan that may be connected to the shooting.
This coronavirus has messed up a lot of things, and last week the players would have been in practice. If this pandemic was not happening right now Antuan Williams would likely be alive.
Ribault head football coach Marlon White described the junior defensive end as a “really good kid, very energetic… every time I saw him he would talk about how excited he was about next season.”
Please keep the Williams family and friends in your prayers.
These senseless acts need to stop. Two talented young men are now gone because of gun fire. Whatever happened to meet me at the flag pole? Man, I hate this news. Rest In Peace Antuan Williams!
