“Coach Williams is a living legend who has dedicated his life to helping young people become better athletes and more importantly, better people. For over 50 years, developing future leaders has been at the core of everything he has done. He accomplished these goals, along with leading his alma mater to 39 national titles and proudly serving his country, including when coaching the 2004 Olympic track and field team. As one would imagine, he has been touched by the outpouring of appreciation and support he has received today from across this country.
Williams has been a household name at the school since returning to his alma mater in 1968, bringing its track and field and cross country program to national prominence. During his tenure, Williams has coached more than 40 Olympians. One of those athletes was Bershawn “Batman” Jackson, who graduated from SAU and won the bronze in the 2008 Summer Olympics.
Williams is a member of nine different halls of fame, including the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association and the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame.

Let's show support to a legendary track coach, leader and father to many!!!!
