Honors for new CVU football coach

Before he takes the helm of the Champlain Valley Union High football program, Mike Williams was being honored for his final season at Bellows Free Academy of Fairfax.

Williams was named the Vermont Football Coach of the Year Sunday by the Vermont Chapter of the National Football Foundation at its dinner at Castleton State College.

Last fall, Williams led the Bullets to the Division 3 championship, their first title in eight seasons of varsity play.

The team also won a sportsmanship award.

Williams takes over at CVU this year, replacing Jim Provost, who announced his retirement at the conclusion of the 2014 campaign.
