Williams spent his entire college career at the University of Cincinnati. In his senior season, Williams led Cincinnati to a ranking of ninth in the nation in goals-against-average and held opponents to only 14 goals in 19 matches. He earned all-BIG EAST third team honors during that stretch.


After spending 2011 with USL PDL club GPS Portland Phoenix and with USL Pro club Wilmington Hammerheads, Williams signed with Dayton Dutch Lions on March 3, 2012.[1] He made his debut for the club a month later in a 0-0 draw with Charlotte Eagles. Williams finished the year leading the USLPro in saves with 115 while recording 5 shutouts and starting every game for the Dutch Lions.[2]
