ALLENDALE, Mich. -- Grand Valley State senior quarterback Bart Williams is now the school's all-time leader in career touchdown passes with 118.

Williams threw for five touchdowns in Saturday's 45-20 win over visiting Michigan Tech. He has thrown no interceptions this season.

He surpasses Curt Anes (114) for first on the school's all-time list.

"It was a lot of fun," Williams said, "a lot of fun with my teammates, and I think that's the most important thing.  All those touchdowns, they were the ones in the end zone.  Throwing and catching is tough, getting touchdowns is tough, and big credit to the guys going across the middle, catching the ball downfield, and making plays on the ball."

Williams in now second on the school's all-time passing yards list, just 13 behind Cullen Finnerty.  Williams will likely set that record Saturday when the Lakers play at Northwood.
