Chaz Williams (Skyhawk '04)  - has continued his collegiate basketball career at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) in the 2011-2012 season after transferring from Hofstra University. Chaz , 5'9" 175 lbs redshirt sophomore point guard is known for his great skills, ball handling and court vision and is a leader in the Atlantic 10 Conference.

During the 2011-2012 season, Chaz has done the following:

 - Leads team in scoring, assists, minutes played and steals

 - UMass played in the post season NIT Tournament reaching the semi-finals held at Madison Square Garden on Mar. 27, 2012

 Chaz came to UMass after a stellar career at Bishop Ford HS. Chaz was the face of the program for 3 years. Chaz led the Falcons to back-to-back appearances in the CHSAA ClassA intersectional title game and had an outstanding career:

 - 4 year starter

 - Graduated as the 2nd leading scorer in Bishop Ford history

 - Avg. 25.9 pts and 6.2 assista as a senior

 - Named a Jordan Brand All-American

 - 1st All State (Class A) by NYS Sportwriters Association

 - 2nd team All-City by NY Daily News

During his Skyhawk days, Chaz was a very smart and proficient QB. He was instrumental in leading his Pee Wee and Bantam teams to the Championship Game. Chaz's game-breaking abilities were truly missed by the Skyhawk Bantams in 2005 when he elected to solely concentrate on basketball. Chaz went on to have great success at Bishop Ford and we know we'll hear more from him in the near future.

We wish you continued success in your future endeavors

Make Us Proud!!

Playing for the SKYHAWKS is a fun time of your life, but it's only a small part.

With the start of the school year upon us, make certain that you find the time to HIT THE BOOKS!!!

Practices, games, etc. will eat into your schedule so it is very important that you manage your time properly

Turn off the TV, put down the video games and allow a few hours a night to study/review what you learned in school. Take extra time to work on the subjects that you have trouble with.

Don't be afraid to speak to your parents, teachers, or coaches about your trouble spots in class.
