Mario made 2006 a year to remember (is the title but wouldn't take it)

In a year of milestones, this may be the biggest of all.

Looking back on 2006 it’s easy to pinpoint the highlight of the Onslow County sports scene, and it can be summed up in one word:


The city of Richlands was abuzz in late April when favorite son Mario Williams — who starred at Richlands High School before going on to a stellar career at North Carolina State University — was mentioned as a possible top-5 selection in the annual NFL draft. Early rumors had Williams, who finished high school early then left N.C. State after his junior campaign, perhaps being selected at No. 5 by the Green Bay Packers.
