Weekend wrapup: How Hillsborough's collegians performed

Our weekend football recap of Hillsborough County-based collegians hits both both coasts, starting with an ex-Florida Mr. Football who has become proficient in the Wildcat offense:

* Two years after leading Jefferson to a Class 3A state title, QB Quentin Williams (pictured) has asserted himself as the catalyst of Bethune-Cookman's offense. A true sophomore, Williams collected 239 total yards -- including 111 rushing -- in Saturday's 28-12 win against North Carolina A&T in Daytona Beach.

Williams had scoring runs of 31 and 5 yards for the 'Cats (4-2), who remain undefeated in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

"Quentin is a very good athlete," B-CC coach Brian Jenkins said. "He can operate our offense at a high level. I just see it as a young man getting better."

* On the country's opposite coast, King alumnus Daniel Zychlinski had a superb Saturday, averaging 54.2 yards on four punts in Stanford's wild 54-48 overtime win against Arizona. A senior, Zychlinski had a long of 59 yards, with one pinned inside Arizona's 20.

* In the Northeast, Holy Cross ILB Scott O'Donoghue (Sickles) had a team-best six tackles and blocked a third-quarter punt in the previously winless Crusaders' 13-6 victory against Bucknell. O'Donoghue sparked a defensive effort that held the Bison to 191 total yards.

* Near the Atlantic Coast, Liberty senior RB Sirchauncey Holloway (Armwood) collected 64 total yards in the Flames' 42-35 victory against Gardner-Webb. Runnin' Bulldogs TB J.J. Hubbard (Robinson) had 50 all-purpose yards for the losers.
