South Georgia pilot to fly over Army vs. Navy Game


WORTH CO., GA (WALB) - A South Georgia pilot has been selected to take part in special event prior to one of college football's most storied rivalries. 

 Lieutenant Commander Chris Williams of Bridgeboro in Worth County is one of four pilots that will be executing a fly over prior to the game.

This year's Army Navy game marks the 113th edition of the interservice rivalry.

Williams was chosen by the Navy to be the head pilot of the formation and will fly an F-18.

Williams' father hopes this news will encourage others from South Georgia to follow their dreams.

"You can do whatever you want to do, but you have to do the things, that will qualify you for those things as you go through life, through elementary, middle, high school, and college, and there is no limit to what you can do," said Claven Williams, Pilot's Father, ASU Military Liason Coordinator.

The pilots will be introduced between the third and fourth quarters. The army navy game will be played tomorrow in Philadelphia.
