William Williams

Class of 1976

William was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1990. His citation is below:

Bill Williams was one of the most versatile athletes to ever attend Washington College. He excelled in soccer, basketball and baseball, yet it was for his soccer participation that he gained his highest recognition, earning the distinction as the number one draft choice of the Washington Diplomats, for whom he played profes-sionally for one year.

At Washington College, he will long be remembered for his outstanding offensive ability. Bill earned a place on the first team Mason-Dixon Conference and the Middle Atlantic Conference All-Conference soccer teams three years’ running. He made the first team of the All-South All-American team twice, and represented the College one year each on the third and fourth teams. In 1973 he was selected to the national All-American Squad. To this day, Williams is still Washington College’s all-time leading scorer in men’s soccer with 80 goals and 27 assists.

In other sports, he earned the Most Valuable Player award in baseball, and earned two letters in varsity basketball. And he served as president of the Theta Chi fraternity in his senior year.

An excellent student, Bill was awarded the Thomas Spedden Medal at his graduation, as well as the coveted Athletic Council Award, given to that individual who has contributed most to the development of athletics at Washington College.

Now a sales representative for the Norfolk Southern Corporation, he is still giving it his best shot. Bill has won his company’s Regional Sales Award not once, not twice, but five times.

Washington College considers it a privilege to induct William N. Williams into its Athletic Hall of Fame on this fifth day of October, 1990.
