Johnny Williams on the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl

In conjunction with our partners at D1.ticker, Turnkey Search is pleased to present “1.Question”, an audio feature in D1.ticker’s daily email newsletter. “1.Question” features brief interviews with high level collegiate athletic administrators.

Raycom Media Camellia Bowl Executive Director Johnny Williams discusses the prime-time slot his game has this year on the first day of bowl play, the community-wide efforts surrounding the event in Montgomery, and the uniqueness of Cramton Bowl. Williams, who has plenty of department-side experience as the former AD at Troy and as a senior leader at Alabama, notes the history of the city and the value it offers student-athletes.
