Charles ‘CJ’ Williams
Gunning for Rookie of the Year
A freshman out of Millwood School in Richmond, Virginia, Charles “CJ” Williams has lived up to the high expectations coach Kevin Nickelberry had for him entering the season.
Forced into a starting spot on a team riddled with injuries, Williams will likely end the season as the team’s leading scorer and is the front-runner for Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year honors.
“CJ’s one of the most athletic guys that we have,” said Nickelberry.
Williams led Millwood to a Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA) Division III championship in 2014, scoring 28 points in the title game. He was second team All-State in 2015 and made the VISAA All-tournament team in 2016.
