Volunteers grab pitcher from Alabama's football team

John A. Logan College has given former University of Alabama punter Jay Williams a scholarship to play baseball this season.

Williams had previously excelled in baseball, and returned to the sport after losing his starting spot on the football team.

He was a two-time All-State performer as a prep and has been pushing past the 90mph barrier in workouts.

Williams is already enrolled in fall semester classes at John A. Logan.
