Winston Churchill High School is very proud to welcome Willie Williams as our new Head Varsity Football Coach. Coach Williams has been with Winston Churchill since 2009 as an assistant coach. Below is a little information on Coach Williams:
An all-star cornerback on the field and a respected member of his community and family man off the field, Willie Williams enjoyed a successful NFL career in the 1990’s and early 2000’s for 13 seasons. Mr. Williams graduated from Western Carolina University where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Management while playing for the university’s football team. In 2010, he was inducted into the Western Carolina University Hall of Fame. He was drafted in the 6th round by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 1993 NFL Draft. Mr. Williams spent his first four seasons with Pittsburgh and became a starter in 1995. That same year, he helped take his team to Super Bowl XXX and led the AFC in interceptions. Mr. Williams received the Mackey Award for his efforts and was honored as the Defensive Player of the Month, December 1995. He played seven seasons with the Seattle Seahawks and finished his last two seasons back with the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he helped the team win Super Bowl XL. He left the NFL with 13 seasons, 26 interceptions, 5 touchdowns, 602 tackles and a Super Bowl championship ring.
In 2002 while still playing in the NFL, Mr. Williams founded Show Them We Care (STWC), a non-profit foundation. The organization’s primary mission is to help children and adults succeed by teaching them to be good leaders, to understand the importance of education, to make ethical decisions, and to gain knowledge for advancing in the work force and society.
After retiring from his successful NFL career, Mr. Williams began a new chapter and founded his company, XPRO Training Consultants (www.xprotc.com) which equips young athletes with the discipline, proper training, drive and determination that they need to reach their maximum potential. He also launched the company’s signature XPRO Sports Performance wear (www.xprogear.com) in 2013. At present, Mr. Williams is a well-respected high school football coach at Winston Churchill High School in Potomac, Maryland where he inspires players and students to push for their greatest achievements.
The Winston Churchill athletic department couldn’t be happier with this selection as we know Coach Williams will continue to grow the football program and bring it back to the respectability it has had historically.
