Jay Williams Looks to Future Beyond High School

Jay Williams, a senior at Homewood High School loves the game of football. His approach to the practices and games is that of a man on a mission. As a Defensive lineman, punter and kicker, Jay shows that he has what colleges need... versitility. As a punter, he averages over 47 yards a punt. He believes he can take that ability to the next level.


After several campus visits to Division 3 Huntingdon College in Montgomery, he believes that may be his destination. Playing college football, while getting a quality education, are high on Jay's list of future accomplishments. He still has one major goal to accomplish first - winning the Alabama 5A State Championship. He and his fellow Patriots have clinched the Region 4 Championship and are focused on the big prize.

Red Baraat Performs for HHS

On Friday, September 14, 2012, the eclectic music group, Red Baraat, performed for Homewood High School faculty, staff, and students. Red Baraat’s sound is a fusion of Nothern Indian music, jazz, funk, and latin. The group is from New York but performed in Birmingham as part of the Alys Stephens Center for the Performing Arts’ fall schedule. The Stephens Center has a program called “Meet the Artist” whose goal is to connect students and artists for free. The Stephens Center chose Homewood High School as the host for Red Baraat’s “Meet the Artist” performance due to our diverse student body and our love of music and emphasis on arts education.
