Mahwah, NJ- Warm, loving, functional. These words describe
the horrifyingly normal and supportive childhood of Ramapo College’s budding
superstar athlete, Jerry Williams. Williams anchors the nationally ranked men’s
basketball team as a versatile and explosive point guard. His ascent to the
position of dominance is a story nothing short of heroic.

Growing up in a gated community in a suburb outside of New
York City, Jerry Williams, along with his younger sister, was raised by
affectionate parents. Williams describes his childhood as perfect and flawless,
a difficult past to overcome.

Williams commented, in perfect grammar taught to him over
12 years of private school education, ” Do you know what it’s like trying to
make it as an athlete in this day and age when you weren’t beaten or neglected
one time?”

The startling interview with Jerry Williams concluded that
the point guard had never once owned a gun or driven a getaway car for friends
robbing a liquor store. “I never even had to sell drugs,” remarked Williams as
a single tear rolled down his cheek. “Not once. Money was never an issue. I
never had the opportunity to grow up with 7 brothers and sisters and watch my
mother struggle to put food on the table. Dad cooked gourmet every night.”

The tale of Jerry Williams is one of monumentally courageous
proportions. With society saying no, Williams has risen to the challenge to get
where he is today. Upon viewing Williams’ transcript from Ramapo College, it is
apparent that the star athlete has never been in danger of academic

In an attempt to simulate a sense of normalcy felt by most
athletes in his position, Williams plans to visit a random father in prison,
only to inform him, “I got to where I am without you, you fucking lowlife.”
