Bolingbrook QB Jonas Williams set to transfer to Lincoln-Way East

Junior-to-be posted huge numbers for Bolingbrook in past two seasons

Bolingbrook’s Jonas Williams rolls out of the pocket against Lincoln-Way West on Friday, Sept. 22 in New Lenox.

Standout quarterback Jonas Williams announced his intention to transfer from Bolingbrook to Lincoln-Way East on Tuesday.

Lincoln-Way East coach Rob Zvonar confirmed that Williams had enrolled in the school and will attend his first classes at the school Wednesday.

The Williams family has moved into the Lincoln-Way East school district, and he’ll be eligible to play in the fall for the Griffins.

Williams, who will be a junior in the fall, has drawn major Division I interest.

Bolingbrook’s Jonas Williams stands on the sidelines between series against Naperville North on Friday, Sept. 8, 2023 in Bolingbrook.

He exploded onto the varsity scene with a seven-touchdown performance against Minooka in his first varsity game for Bolingbrook in 2022 as a freshman. He finished his freshman season with 2,761 yards and 34 passing touchdowns as the Raiders fell to Maine South in the opening round of the Class 8A playoffs, a result that was changed to a forfeit win for Bolingbrook because of an IHSA rules infraction.

Williams increased his statistical numbers in his sophomore season, throwing for 3,245 yards and 33 touchdowns. Bolingbrook, as a team, slipped back a notch, however, finishing 3-6 and failing to make the playoffs.
