3 Key Points

  • Desmond Williams and Stadford Anderson join Panthers ahead of training camp.
  • Williams brings leadership and playmaking ability from Weber State.
  • Anderson offers versatility and explosiveness from his time at Alcorn State.

Panthers’ Latest Talent Acquisitions

In preparation for the upcoming season, the Panthers have enhanced their lineup with strategic signings, securing the commitment of defensive talent Desmond Williams and offensive asset Stadford Anderson. Both players stand out as promising additions, equipped with formidable college football backgrounds and significant potential for impact on the field.

Defensive Back Desmond Williams

With impressive tenures at Weber State following his initial stint at Boise State, Williams rejoins the gridiron spotlight. The 2022 season capped his college career with personal triumphs, including his significant contribution to the Wildcats’ defensive unit and a noteworthy performance yielding a pick-six victory. His resilience, after overcoming not one, but two ACL injuries, underscores a story of perseverance.

Coach Rob Keefe lauds Williams, remarking, “Desmond is an athletic, intuitive and physical football player. His versatility will be on full display all over the field for us this year.” This reflects the expectation that Williams’ dynamic skills will shine through during his tenure with the Panthers.

Running Back Stadford Anderson

Anderson, previously eyeing XFL and CFL opportunities, transitions to the Panthers with stellar references from peers, including quarterback Felix Harper. Harper’s glowing reports on the team culture and opportunities highlight an environment ripe for Anderson’s own evolution.

Despite a college career marred by an MCL injury, Anderson displayed commendable might, averaging an impressive five yards per carry. “Stadford is a physical, explosive running back,” praised Coach Keefe. The coach’s anticipation of Anderson’s college prowess translating to professional play reflects the high hopes placed on the running back’s versatile skill set.

As anticipation for training camp and the upcoming season escalates, the Panthers organization and its fans eagerly await the on-field integration of these new recruits and their contributions to the team’s success.
