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.

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.
