Jackson County Predators host 2024 Karlos Williams Sneads football camp

Williams played professionally in the NFL for the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Last Saturday was filled with summer events in Jackson County, but one stood out above them all with special recognition because Kolson Williams was in town.
This is Williams’ fourth consecutive year of helping with athletically training youth in Jackson County.

Williams is widely known in the area as a former Florida State University Seminole Football Running Back who went on to play for the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers. He now owns Kolson Williams Performance (KWP) a speed and agility based program that helps strengthen young athletes in the achievement of faster and better lateral movement.

The Jackson County Predators proudly hosted Williams as their lead trainer for the football camp. The summer football camp was held in Sneads at Citizens Field in Sneads, Florida and was designated for ages 7-17 and focused on skills and position training.

“I think we had a good turn out,” said Eddie Klotz of the Jackson County Predators. “We will probably be planning something else in August,” he explained as he glanced towards Williams.
Klotz enjoys working with Williams who has become a well-known role model and mentor to the local youth who love football. Klotz runs the Jackson County Predators youth football program and believes “all it takes is a mentor, a field, and an opportunity to play”.

Former Sneads High School running back Jason Patterson who now plays for the University of Kentucky Wildcats Football Team traveled back home to help with the camp. Patterson was a main contributor in the planning of last year’s summer football camp and provided youth training alongside his Sneads Head Football Coach Bill Thomas, assistant coaches, and many of his Pirate teammates. 

At the close of the camp day three young athletes Kyron Dudley, Jah’mari Scott, and Jayden Cumbee were recognized for their outstanding performance in training. Dudley received the top award for Most Standout Player and a $50.00 gift card to Hibbet Sports. Both Scott and Cumbee received $25.00 gift cards to Hibbet Sports.
