Ascension Catholic running back Jai Williams is the parish's Athlete of the Week.

This week’s Weekly Citizen Athlete of the Week, brought to you by Rouses Market, is sophomore running back Jai Williams of Ascension Catholic.

Last week, Jai had 115 yards rushing and scored all three of his team’s touchdowns in their 21-0 state quarterfinal victory over St. Edmund’s. On defense, Williams had nine tackles.

This great two-way effort helped the Bulldogs return to the state semifinals for the first time since 1992.
