Alabama State has become the first college to offer a scholarship to Tampa Catholic QB Doug Williams Jr., son of former Super Bowl-winning signal caller Doug Williams Sr.

Colorado State, Florida A&M and Grambling also have shown interest.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound senior is the Crusaders' backup QB, but he typically gets several snaps per game. Friday night against Jesuit, he completed a 40-yard pass in the first half and had another long completion in the fourth quarter .

"I was pretty excited (to get the offer)," Williams said.

So is his father, the Buccaneer legend.

"It's exciting, No. 1 because he's a kid who hasn't played as much as some," Doug Williams Sr. said. "He knows the fact he got an offer is big. Whenever he gets an opportunity he's going to be a success."
