Athletes of the Week

High School

November 07, 2001


Keith Williams

Glen Burnie, football

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound senior rushed for 120 yards and two touchdowns and passed for 256 yards and four scores to lift Glen Burnie to a 56-22 win over Chesapeake-Anne Arundel. The victory guarantees the Gophers (6-3) their first winning season since 1994.

Williams has rushed for 22 touchdowns on 1,203 yards and passed for 1,107 and nine scores. His combined offensive totals (2,310 yards) are a county record for quarterbacks, eclipsing 1992 Northeast graduate and Terps standout Azizuddin Abdur Ra-oof's 2,032 yards.

An All-Anne Arundel County performer in three sports, Williams is considered a Division I recruit in football and basketball, and a pro prospect in baseball.


Mary Key

St. Mary's, soccer

The All-Metro striker scored six goals last week, including the game-winner in Sunday's 2-0 victory over second-ranked McDonogh that gave the No. 1 Saints their second consecutive Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship.

In the IAAM tournament, Key had a hand in nine of the Saints' 13 goals. The junior contributed 18 goals and six assists to a season in which the Saints are ranked No. 11 in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America high school girls soccer poll.

A veteran of the Olympic Development Program, Key was an under-16 regional pool player last summer. She also plays basketball and lacrosse for the Saints and carries a 3.5 grade-point average.
