Tyrone Williams über die neuen Herausforderungen bei den Giants: “I am proud to announce I have signed with the Graz Giants. The opportunity to win a championship, travel the world and also play with my brother while doing it is something I couldn’t refuse. This organization stands for everything that I want to play for and I love the vision they have. I always kept up with the games last year because I’d watch Darrell Adams play, and to then get so close to the championship and not make it, hurt me as well because I felt his pain. To the fans and Graz nation, I can promise that you’ll always get more than 100% from me and that we’ll finish this thing off right in 2022“
