Newman Williams

St. Vincent St. Mary

Newman Williams played the Rivalry game his sophomore, junior, and senior year. Newman was a force both on offense and defense. Newman was a critical member of the team that lead the Irish to a state championship in 2012 and 2013! Newman is currently on a football scholarship here at the University of Akron, but is currently on the injured reserve. He majors in Sports Management.


Plenty has been made about Hoban's outstanding offensive trio of running back Todd Sibley, quarterback Danny Clark and receiver Jonah Morris, but to put it simply, this team's calling card is it's defense. Prior to Friday's game, the Hoban defense was allowing less than 100 yards of total offense per game and limiting opponents to just 8 points total. Friday was no different as coach Tim Tyrrell's group got solid line play and timely help from its secondary. DaeshonCoppinger, Jacob Kepler and Nick Lewis put pressure on St. Vincent-St. Mary quarterback Dom Davis, forcing him into a first-quarter interception by Morris that set up Sibley's 19-yard touchdown run. By the end of the game Hoban had a dominating lead of 24-7!
