The “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” episode featuring Greenville football coach Jeremy Williams will be televised at 8 p.m. Sunday by ABC.
Williams, whose inspirational journey was voted the AJC’s Sports Story of the Year by our readers, has the terminal illness of ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Rather than extensive remodeling, the “Extreme Makeover” crew bulldozed the Pine Valley house of Williams, and built a new one to accommodate the health issues of the coach, along with those of his son, Jacob, who was born with spina bifida. The TV show also remodeled the fieldhouse at Greenville High School in late February.
ABC aired a promo for the upcoming episode during this past Sunday’s “Extreme Makeover.” Viewers of the show saw singer-actress Demi Lovato of Disney fame sing to the Williams family while they were on vacation in Colorado — at the same time the construction work was performed back in Georgia, according to the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer.
