Carlos Williams, a 2013 Covington High School graduate who excelled on the baseball and football fields, signed to play football with the University of Memphis on National Signing Day last week. 

Williams, who originally signed with Ole Miss to play baseball, was among 22 signees for the Tigers. 

Signed as a defensive back, Williams played cornerback and wide receiver for the Chargers in 2012, helping Covington to the Class 4A state title game. 

He was injured for most of his junior year, but rushed for over 1,000 yards as a sophomore running back in 2010. 

On the baseball field, Williams set the Tennessee high school state record with 185 career stolen bases and the national record for being hit by a pitch (60). He helped lead the Chargers to the state tournament in 2012.

He was featured in Sports Illustrated for those accomplishments and was ranked as one of the top 75 high school outfield prospects in the country.
