Sidwell Friends’ Caleb Williams beats Wilson at the buzzer for another DCSAA title

Written by: Kyle Melnick

Three years ago, Caleb Williams was a short middle-schooler sitting behind the Sidwell Friends bench at the D.C. State Athletic Association Class AA boys’ basketball championship game. When the Quakers won on a buzzer-beater in overtime to announce themselves as one of the D.C. area’s top teams, Williams jumped to see snippets of the on-court celebration.

At that moment, Williams decided he wanted to help Sidwell continue to make history. The sophomore accomplished that goal with his own buzzer-beater in Sunday night’s DCSAA title game.

With just moments remaining at George Washington’s Smith Center, Williams grabbed his teammate’s miss and finished a reverse layup as the buzzer sounded on No. 2 Sidwell’s 46-45 win over No. 7 Wilson.

“I brought that dog out from inside me,” said Williams, a 6-foot-7, 215-pound guard. “It’s crazy how we can be in the same exact situation. Playing on the biggest stage possible is something that I really try to take pride in.”
