Coach Williams’ workouts were the reason we were the last team standing this year. We felt the work we put in with coach gave us an advantage mentally and physcially. We had the mental edge on every team because we worked harder and we felt we were stronger and faster. We had the physical edge throught the season due to the intense excercises we put our body’s through. In addition to these benefits, I believe his workouts have become a huge part of the basketball program, something the players and the program take a lot of pride in.
Individually, Coach Williams’ workouts elevated me from an All-conference player to an All-American. His basketball related strength and conditioning workouts made me more confident in my body’s ability to handle the physical demands involved in playing 85 minutes on back-to-back days to win a conference championship. I owe it all to Coach Williams, I was able to play to the best of my ability because my body was conditioned and trained to handle demanding situations and perform at a high level every minute of the game and every game of the season. Coach Williams demanded intensity, effeciency, and effort from us at such a high level that games felt as if they were vacations. We trust coach , we committed to coach, and we care about coach because of his knowledge and his leadership along with being a first class individual. My goal was to be able to look Coach William’s in the eyes and tell him I did my best, I achieved my goal. He has motivated me to be a man of high character so one day an individual wants to look me in the eyes and say I did my best coach.
