Andre, please stop milking this story. This has to the 5th article, in as many days, of a mediocre topic. We know you like to be the Valley's answer to Stuart Scott...but enough about UMBC already. When you had the local mothers in for an interview (last week) it was nice. When you covered the pre-game, it was ok too. But let it go already, The kid was 2 for 9 from the field when we all tuned-out. Aren't the LV Outlaxz starting practice soon. That would be a good "Andre Column" for the next twelve weeks.

How dare you discredit the fine work Mr Williams does. Let me guess you must not be a fan of hoops or local flavor who makes good. With all the negativity in Allentown and surrounding area be happy we have some young men who avoided the lure of the streets or wanna be thugs, hustlers etc. Bottom line if you don't want to read the story then don't read it. You are only one hater I mean reader. Outlaxz have known felons on their roster. That is more entertaining for you I assume. An adult still chasing a football dream..........Wow! Get a life and more stories Dre please.

Ummm...person from North Wales: Mr. Williams ALWAYS writes about rhe same kids. We all know it, and we all pass it off with "It's Andre giving his props again". For anyone in the know, Keith Groller and Gary Blockus are the columns to read first every morning. Williams stories are like an E! True Hollywood Story, in that we have to hear all of the personal struggles a highs school basketball player had to overcome, blah, blah, blah

Andre Williams is a Diva!!! He is a fake "wanna be" writer who could not make in DC. where he began his illustrious career. It's not about the kids who deserve this credit, it's about a "bama" who just like the previous comment said is a fake Stuart Scott. Andre, come out of the closet. And much props to Ray Ray & Jay Greene. Well done u 2!!!

Can't take anything from these two kids, they played hard aginst a superior team. That Coach Snyder is tops in the valley. A true gentleman, great coach and a classy guy.

Now Andre on the other hand wouldn't know a good player unless someone else wrote about him/her. He still thinks thet Austin Scott dude is an innocent choir boy. Both AW and AS should be selling hotdogs at the Coke!

Get ready Groller, listen for them, you know your getting hungry it's the bottom of the 1st already.....Hot Dogs! Git your doggies herea!
