Salina Central’s Hampton Williams – American Family Insurance Athlete of the Month

Varsity volleyball standout and Salina Central High School senior Hampton Williams loves playing the sport of volleyball and she loves her position on the team. “I play outside hitter and all the way around. I love the competitiveness volleyball brings out but that goes for all sports,” said Williams. “I love how my teammates support one another and how we hold each other accountable. They are some of my best friends and that makes it fun to just go out there and play.” 

Also a basketball player for the Lady Mustangs, Williams can play multiple positions on the basketball court. “I can play anywhere in basketball but, I was recruited to play a small forward or a power forward position,” said Williams. 

In the classroom, Williams brings the same focus to making good grades, while supporting other athletes who play different sports. “The best thing about being a student-athlete at Central is getting to know the other student-athletes and supporting them in their games,” said Williams. 

Her plan after high school is to continue her education while still playing sports. “I plan on attending Abilene Christian University in Texas where I will play basketball and major in pre-med,” said Williams. 

Away from sports, Williams said she loves to visit her brothers, work out, spend time with friends and family and travel to new places.
