Williams repeats as Male Amateur Athlete of the Year

Orange & White Nation

Grant Williams will have until June 10 to decide if he wants to go pro or return to Tennessee for his senior season.

In the meantime, the back-to-back SEC Player of the Year is going back-to-back with another award.

Williams was named the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame’s Male Amateur Athlete of the Year for the second year in a row on Wednesday.

Eric Berry is the only other Tennessee athlete to win the award multiple times.

The consensus first-team All-American from Charlotte, N.C. averaged 18.8 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.1 steals per game last season. Williams ranked first in the SEC in scoring, second in field-goal percentage and fifth in free-throw percentage. He also ranks 12th in program history in scoring with 1,629 career points.

Williams will be honored in Nashville June 15, five days after the deadline to make a decision.
