  • [Men's Basketball] Mechanics Start Slow and Can't Recover
    January 11, 2018

    Down two starters from their previous game, Williamson came out flat on Thursday night against Middlesex and never recovered in a 87-67 loss to the visiting Colts.

    Middlesex shot a blistering 57% from the floor in the first half while holding Williamson to a paltry 35%, as they raced to a 43-28 halftime lead.   They then increased that lead to 19 before Williamson went on a 13-0 run and actually pulled to within six point at one point, before falling apart in the latter stages of the second half.   While Williamson was able to shoot better in the second half, the Colts remained hot themselves, as they shot 52% from the floor for the game.  The also had a 40-29 advantage on the boards.

    Darnill Brown led Williamson with 19 points.  He also added 4 assists.  Kyree Freeman has 13 point and Ryan Carlino added 10 for the losers. 

    Williamson falls to 8-8 on the year and has a week off to try to re-group.  They next host Thaddeus Stevens on Thursday, January 18

  • [Football] Four Williamson Football Players Earn First Team All-American Honors
    January 03, 2018

    The 2018 year got started off on a great note for the Williamson football program as four of their players earned All-American honors by the United States Collegiate Athletic Association.  Juniors Gino DiCamillo (JR/Broomall. PA) (linebacker), DaVon Lewis (JR/Chester, PA) (offensive tackle) and DeJuan Outlaw (JR/Elkton, MD) (return specialist) along with freshman Jack Gibson (FR/Rutledge, PA) (cornerback), earned the USCAA's top honor for their accomplishments on the field this past season. 

    A Second team All-American performer in 2016, DiCamillo left no doubt about things this year as he led, Williamson in tackles, was sixth overall in the nation in that category, and was recently named the Co-Defensive Player of the Year for the Seaboard Conference.  For the year, he had 65 tackles (8.7 per game), including nine were for loss.  He also had an interception, a sack, seven hurries, three pass break-ups, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.  He is a two-time First Team Seaboard Conference selection.  He also is an outstanding lacrosse player for Williamson's lacrosse team.

    Outlaw's accomplishments are even more incredible considering the fact he was coming off a devastating knee injury that sidelined him all of his freshman year.  He came back with a vengeance though in 2017 as he was named the 2017 Seaboard Conference All-Purpose Player of the Year.  He did it all for Williamson in 2017, as he was second on the team in receptions with 18 for 401 yards (21.1) and three touchdowns, averaged a whopping 27.1 yards on 11 kick-off returns, had one punt return for 24 yards, and also added 52 yards rushing.   As if that was not enough, he was the team's punter, averaging 35.7 yards per punt on 41 punts.  In addition to being named the First Team all-purpose player for the Seaboard Conference, he also was named a Second Team wide receiver and also earned USCAA Academic All-American honors for his work in the classroom.

    A two-year starter at left tackle, Lewis was a huge reason Williamson was able to average over 350 yards of offense per game.  His presence on the line was huge for Williamson in both the run game and the passing game, as Williamson rushed for over 1,100 yards and passed for over 1,200 yards.  He also is a member of the Williamson baseball team.

    Gibson took the football world by storm in 2017 as just a freshman.  In his first collegiate game, he not only started but tied the Williamson record for interceptions in a game with three, in Williamson's win 12-10 win over Jersey Coast Academy.  He finished the year with a league high six interceptions, which also tied for the lead in the USCAA as well.  He also lead the USCAA with nine pass break-ups, despite teams tending to throw away from his side of the field. 

    The four First Team honorees are the most in a single year in Williamson history.  Williamson closed out their 2017 campaign with a 3-5 overall record, going 1-2 in the Seaboard Conference. 

       
  • [Baseball] Baseball Team's Rally Falls Just Short
    March 24, 2017

    James Muscarella (JR/West Chester, PA) pitched seven strong innings while CJ Cardell added a double and two RBIs but it was not quite enough as a late Williamson rally fell just short in their 4-3 loss to Luzerne County College on Thursday.

  • [Men's Basketball] Mechanics Let One Slip Away
    January 06, 2018

    In their first game back after taking a six game winning streak into Christmas Break, Williamson looked prime to stretch that streak to seven straight wins, as they led visiting Penn state Mont Alto by twelve points with just over seven minutes remaining.  It was then that things took a dramatic turn for the worse for Williamson as they turned the ball over seven times in the final seven minutes and were outscored 16-2 down the stretch, in losing a 60-58 decision to the visitors.

    Williamson started off slowly but managed to gain a five point halftime lead at 31-26.  They then slowly incread that lead to twelve before the Lions came back with their big run to win the game.

    Williamson was led by James Hill (JR/Laplata, MD) with 16 points, while Darnill Brown (FR/Bordentown, NJ) was the only other Mechanic in double-figures with 11.

    Williamson drops to 8-7 on the year.  The next host Middlesex College on Thursday night, January 11 at 7:00 P.M.

     
  • [Football] DelPercio and Outlaw Honored as 2017 USCAA Football Academic All-Americans
    December 19, 2017

    Junior football players DeJuan Outlaw (JR/Elkton, MD) and Vince DelPercio (JR/Middletown, DE) were named to the 2017 USCAA Football National Academic squad (Academic All-Americans) the organization recently announced.  The pair give Williamson seven USCAA Academic All-Americans this Fall.

    Outlaw, who was recently named the 2017 Seaboard Conference All-Purpose Player of the Year, had a breakout year on the field for the Mechanics.  He caught 19 passes for 401 yards, had 52 yards rushing, returned 11 kick-offs for a whopping 27.1 yard per return average and punted 41 times for a 35.7 yard average, with seven punts being downed inside the twenty yard line.  In addition to being named First Team all purpose and All Purpose Player of the Year, he was named Second Team wide receiver.    

    In his first year as the starting quarterback for the Mechanics, DelPercio had a fine season and was recently named Second Team quarterback for the Seaboard Conference.  He passed for over 1,200 yards this season, while completing over 43% of his passes, with fourteen of his completions going for touchdowns.  In addition to his work through the air, he rushed for over 200 yards on the season (4.2 yards per carry) and scored five touchdowns.  

  • [Men's Basketball] Mechanics Close Out first Half on Six Game Winning Streak
    December 16, 2017

    What looked like was going to be a disaster at the start of the season, has now proved to be an intriguing one for Williamson.  After starting the season with just six players and losing their first five games, the Mechanics have put things together. After defeating Christendom College on Saturday, Williamson will carry a six-game winning streak into the Christmas Break.

    Saturday's game was a microcosm on how Williamson has been able to turn their season around; great defense and a balanced attack.  Williamson held a scrappy Christendom squad to just 28% shooting for the game Saturday, while holding their last six opponents to a combined 38% from the floor.  Nazir  Goldston led Williamson in scoring on Saturday with 24 points, making it the sixth straight game a different person has led Williamson in scoring.  Kyree Freeman (JR/Glenarden, MD) added 11 points, nine assists and seven rebounds to help the effort against the Crusaders.

    "We are not where we need to be but we are improving," stated Williamson head coach Bill Michaels.  "We've come a long way from where we were in the beginning of November but we still have a long way to go.  The guys could have panicked when we were 0-5 but they hung tough together and the results speak for themselves."

    Speak for themselves indeed.  Williamson's only loss after starting -5 was to NJCAA national power Rowan College at Gloucester County.  Even better for Williamson is the fact they play six nationally ranked USCAA teams in the second semester, which gives them a chance to rise in the rankings.

    "We can have a lot of say in our destiny and the destiny of other teams as well.  We just have to keep playing our game, keep making smart plays and improving each time we hit the floor, be it a practice or a game.  If we do that, we should be just moving forward," closed Michaels.

    Williamson resumes play in 2018 on January 6 as they host Penn State Mont Alto in a 1:00 P.M. tip-off.

  • [Men's Basketball] Mechanics Blow Big Halftime Lead But Come Back Late to Defeat Lehigh Carbon
    December 13, 2017

    Williamson hit the road on Tuesday and found themselves with what appeared to be a comfortable 33-17 halftime lead over host Lehigh Carbon Community College.  Looks can be deceiving and that is exactly what happened to Williamson, as the hosts came storming back and actually led game with a minute to go before Williamson scored the final four points to come away with a 61-58 victory over the Cougars.

    Williamson trailed with just over a minute to go before retaking the lead, 59-58.  They then needed a big defensive stand and got just that to regain possession and maintain their lead.   Senior guard Jose Montanez then calmly hit two free throws at the end ice the game for Williamson. 

    The win is Williamson's fifth in a row and moves them above .500 for the first time all season.  After starting the year off 0-5, Williamson has since gone 7-1 over their last eight games.  Their only loss during that stretch came at the hands of #3 ranked Central Penn, a team they led by six at halftime before losing.  They close out their first semester slate this Saturday at noon against Christendom College.

  • [Football] Outlaw, DiCamillo Top All-Conference Picks
    December 12, 2017

    Juniors DeJuan Outlaw (JR/Elkton, MD) and Gino DiCamillo (JR/Broomall. PA) were named Seaboard Conference MVPs, while four other players were named a 2017 Seaboard Conference First Team selection, as announced by the conference recently.  In addition to those six selections, Williamson had four players named to the Second Team squad.

    Outlaw was named the 2017 Seaboard Conference All-Purpose MVP, and rightfully so.  He did it all for Williamson in 2017, as he was second on the team in receptions with 18 for 401 yards (21.1) and three touchdowns, averaged a whopping 27.1 yards on 11 kick-off returns, had one punt return for 24 yards, and also added 52 yards rushing.   As if that wasn't enough, he was the team's punter, averaging 35.7 yards per punt on 41 punts.  In addition to being named First Team all-purpose player, he also was named a Second Team wide receiver.

    DiCamillo was named Co-Defensive Player of the Year, as well as a First Team outside linebacker.  He had an amazing year, logging 65 tackles (8.7 per game), of which nine were for loss.  He also had an interception, a sack, seven hurries, three pass break-ups, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.  He was a First Team Seaboard Conference selection last year as well as a Second Team USCAA All-American in 2016.

    Joining those two on as First Team selections were offensive tackle DaVon Lewis (JR/Chester, PA), tight end Blaze Puzznagara, middle linebacker Michael Shanahan (SR/Glenolden, PA) and cornerback Jack Gibson (FR/Rutledge, PA).

    A two-year starter at left tackle, Lewis was a huge reason Williamson was able to average over 350 yards of offense per game.  His presence on the line was huge for Williamson in both the run game and the passing game, as Williamson rushed for over 1,100 yards and passed for over 1,200 yards.  He also is a member of the Williamson baseball team.

    The ultimate teammate, Puzzangara was asked to shift to tight end in 2017 after finishing second on the team in tackles in 2016 at outside linebacker.  An extremely strong blocker, he also had several key catches for Williamson on the year, two of which that went for touchdowns.  An outstanding all-around athlete, he also is a two-year starter for the Williamson baseball team.

    Shanahan capped off a brilliant career by being named First Team at middle linebacker.  A true ball magnet, if there was a turnover occurring, chances are he was right in the middle of it, either forcing it or coming away with it.  He had 41 tackles, including seven for loss, an interception, three pass-break-ups, two fumble recoveries, a forced fumble, a blocked kick, four hurries, and a safety in 2017 alone.  He was a Second Team selection in 2016.

    Gibson took the football world by storm in 2017 as just a freshman.  In his first collegiate game, he not only started but tied the Williamson record for interceptions in a game with three, in Williamson's win 12-10 win over Jersey Coast Academy.  He finished the year with a league high six interceptions, which also tied for the lead in the USCAA as well. 

    Williamson was well-represented in the second team as well as quarterback Vince DelPercio (JR/Middletown, DE), fullback Dwayne Parent (JR/Brookhaven, PA), defensive lineman Pat Shoup and defensive bag Mike O'Chuida all were named to squad. 

    Williamson finished 2017 at 3-5 overall, while going 1-2 in the conference play. 

      
  • [Men's Basketball] Mechanics Overcome Slow Start with Big Second Half to Upend SUNY-ESF
    December 10, 2017

    As far as first halves go, Sunday's for Williamson was one the Mechanics would just as soon forget.  They shot a paltry 33 percent from the floor, turned the ball over seven times and committed 11 fouls, in trailing SUNY-ESF 34-28 at the break.

    As far as second halves go however, Williamson had one they would just as soon would repeat as they held the Mighty Oaks without a single point for over ten minutes to start the half, and just 14 for the entire half, while outscoring them 35-14 to come away with the triumph. 

    "It wasn't pretty in the first half but our intensity level picked up and that was the key for us in the second," stated Williamson head coach Bill Michaels.  "Once our defense picked up, our offense did as well. It was a true team effort."

    A team effort indeed, as six Williamson players had nine or more points.  Nazir Goldston (FR/Pottsgrove PA) had 13, Ryan Tobin (JR/Newtown Square, PA) 11 and Gus Pagan (JR/Prospect Park, PA) added 10 for the Mechanics.  Kyree Freeman (JR/Glenarden, MD) had a big game helping out his teammates as he dished out a game high 10 assists.

    The win extends Williamson's winning streak to four and even's their record at 6-6.  They will try to stretch that streak to five on Tuesday night as they travel to Lehigh Carbon Community College in a 8:00 P.M. start.
