College Basketball: Former WV Player of Year Williams leads the way at Salem

Adam Williams, who starred at St. Albans High School and was the State Player of the Year in 2004 under his father, Tex, recently wrapped up his first season as head coach for Salem International University.

The son of a coach became a coach.

And now he is a head coach.

Adam Williams wrapped up his first season as the leader of Salem International's proud tradition back in February.

Williams' Tigers won their finale game against Ohio Valley to garner just the second win of the season.

The son of state coaching legend Tex Williams, the new Tiger head coach was the West Virginia High School Player of the Year (Evans Award) in 2004 while playing for his father at St. Albans High School.

Following his college playing days, which included stints at Kentucky and Marshall, Williams coached as an assistant at West Virginia Tech, UCF and Longwood University.

Despite a tough season, Williams feels the sky is the limit for the Harrison County school, which at the moment is a NCAA Division II independent.
