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 120 yards rushing and four touchdowns in his team’s 35-21 win over St. Mary’s on Friday night. He also had an interception on defense.

The win punched the Bulldogs’ ticket to the state title game for the first time since 1992.

This is the second straight week Williams has been the Athlete of the Week, and it is his third time earning the distinction this season.
