The eighth-graders, all of whom could not dunk at the time, were pretty upset.

A 6-4, high-flyer, Williams, who is one of the state’s top football recruits in the class of 2013, continued to soar over the competition through last year — winning The T&D’s inaugural “Slammin’ and Jammin’” prep slam dunk contest as a sophomore.
A rising senior, Williams is back to defend his title this year, and he is confident.
“All I have to say to the competition is don’t worry about me,” he said. “I plan on winning it again.”
