The awards continue to roll in for Skyline receiver Kasen Williams, who is now one of 50 Old Spice Players of the Year.

Here is the press release that went out on Thursday:

Kasen Williams of Skyline High School has been named a national Old Spice Player of the Year.

The Old Spice High School Football Player of the Year program recognizes those high school football players who elevate their play and that of their teammates. The honored athlete embodies and exemplifies leadership and performance. He’s the one player the coach looks to when the game is truly on the line.

According to coach Mat Taylor, “He has shown tremendous leadership skills throughout the season, on and off the field. He is vocal in a positive way that inspires his teammates.”

Williams was chosen from a large pool of nominees from 10,000 participating high school football teams to receive this honor. He is honored as one of 50 players across America who stood out among their peers for their exceptional performance and leadership.

As one of the 50 Old Spice Players of the Year, Williams was honored in a full-page congratulatory announcement in USA Today on Thursday, February 3, 2011 along with the newspaper’s coverage of National Letter of Intent Signing Day.

High school coaches from across the country nominated one player from their teams as their Player of the Year. Each nominee received a certificate to acknowledge his accomplishment and was eligible for the national Old Spice Player of the Year award.
