Kasen Williams — “All I can do is get better”

Simply put, while the defense correctly got most of the attention afterward, the Huskies would not have beaten Stanford were it not for the career-best game of sophomore receiver Kasen Williams, who had 10 receptions for 129 yards (each career highs).

That included the game-winning 35-yard catch-and-run late in the fourth quarter.

UW coach Steve Sarkisian said today that Williams has been practicing “awesome” of late, and that it is that work that is beginning to pair with his obviously physical gifts to pay off in improved play on the field.

Williams said today his goal is to make such performances commonplace.

“I feel like I’m in a zone now,” he said. “I did what I did on Thursday and I hold myself to that standard. I can’t go below that standard – all I can do is get better.”

Where Williams feels specifically he is getting better is in getting separation from defensive backs.

“I think so,” he said. “Any time you catch 10 balls in one game I feel like you’re getting open, you’re doing something right. By me doing that, I’m starting to get open a lot more – so I move on to the next thing which is getting better after the ball is in my hands. So there’s always something you can do to improve your game.”

Asked what he’s done to improve his separation, he said: “Changing your route stuff, doing something different. You can run the same route but make it appear different. There’s a lot of different things you can do to get the corner off edge. All you need is for him to take one step the wrong way and you’re open.”
