September 15, 2019
Myers, a senior from Ringgold, Va., was all over the gridiron -- especially the Mustangs' backfield -- in Bridgewater's 37-22 victory at Stevenson on Saturday. Myers, the 2018 ODAC Lou Wacker Defensive Player of the Year, led all ODAC players this week with 12 tackles with eight solo stops to lead Bridgewater to a first-half shutout of Stevenson, which was receiving votes towards last week's D3football.com Top-25 poll. Myers registered a league-best 4.0 tackles for a loss that cost Stevenson 20 yards of offense. He was especially effective rushing the passer as he registered 3.0 sacks setting back the Mustangs 18 yards. Two of those sacks were akin to turnovers as he stopped a pair of drives with third-down sacks. Both of those stops led to Bridgewater points, while his final sack came on the Mustangs' last possession before BC ran out the clock for the win. Myers is currently second in the ODAC in tackles (21), first in TFLs (5.0), and tied for first with teammate Gary Ramey, Jr., in sacks (4.0).

Williams second interception helped put the game away as he came down with his third takeaway with 15-seconds left in the third quarter at the H-SC 35-yard line.
