SVSU senior defensive tackle Heath Williams has added another postseason honor to his list, being named a Second Team All-American by D2Football.com. It's the second straight season that Williams has earned an All-American honor, being named to the Don Hansen Gazette First Team in 2018.
Heath was earlier named to the D2CCA All-Super Region 3 Second Team for the second straight season. He was named the GLIAC Defensive Lineman of the Year and All-GLIAC First Team for the second straight season as well.
Williams capped-off his Cardinal career with another stellar season in anchoring the SVSU defensive line. Garnering plenty of attention from opposing offenses, Williams racked-up 38 tackles, with five of those coming in the form of sacks and totaling 7.5 tackles-for-loss. Heath ranks third all-time in SVSU history with 22.5 sacks and is third in single season sacks with the 13 he collected in his junior campaign. The 39.5 tackles-for-loss he has posted in his career rank third all-time as well for the East Lansing native who has 135 career tackles. Williams became Saginaw Valley's second-ever GLIAC Defensive Lineman of the Year, with the only other being 1999 NFL first round draft pick Lamar King in the 1998 season.
