Trevor Williams is no stranger to the University of Delaware as he re-joined his alma mater in June 2012 as the assistant strength and conditioning coach.
Williams, now in his second stint with the Blue Hens after spending over a year with Georgetown University, is responsible for the strength and conditioning programs with the UD men’s and women’s basketball and softball teams. He holds a solid vision for his student-athletes to grow physically and mature mentally.
Williams provides the Blue Hens student-athletes with a sound program that includes strength, power and explosiveness, plyometrics, speed, agility, work capacity, and coaching.
Additionally, he serves as the department’s internship coordinator. In this role, Williams established a 13-week program that includes a weekly classroom curriculum, projects, professional development trips, and specific career advancement initiatives.
During the 2012-13 campaign, Williams played an integral role in one of the most remarkable seasons in Delaware women’s basketball history as the Blue Hens picked up their second straight CAA title and NCAA Tournament berth that culminated in a Sweet 16 appearance.
While at Georgetown, he was responsible for writing and implementing strength and conditioning programs for several varsity athletic squads. Williams worked mostly with the Hoya baseball team, specifically working with the pitchers and freshmen developmental program.
In conjunction with his duties at Georgetown, Williams assumed the role of head strength and conditioning coach at The Potomac School. While there, he was in charge of 20 varsity sports, as well as their respective junior varsity programs. Williams cites his greatest accomplishment at The Potomac School as spearheading the development of strong foundations for young student-athletes on and off the field.
In the spring of 2012, Williams received the inaugural Lance Vermeil Scholarship award from the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association for his dedication, passion and commitment to the field.
Williams, a 2008 graduate of the University of Delaware, was a student-athlete with the Blue Hens football team that won the 2003 national championship. He continued to play through the 2005 season until injury cut his career prematurely.
Following his undergraduate career, he interned with the strength and conditioning staff for a year before being hired as a full-time assistant in 2009.
During his first stint with the Blue Hens, Williams assisted with the football squads that made two post-season appearances, including the 2010 FCS national championship game. He has attributed this success to his readiness to lead a championship caliber program to new heights.
Williams holds numerous certifications and is a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association and Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association. He is also a consultant for SiSu Systems in Washington, D.C.
A native of Baltimore, Md., Williams currently resides in Newark.
