Jon Williams, 25, has been named head boys basketball coach at Rockingham County High School.

Williams, who has five years of experience as a coach at three high schools, replaces Tom Gochenour.``This is an unbelievable opportunity that I did not expect this early in my career,' Williams said. ``This is a great responsibility to not only teach the game of basketball to young men, but more importantly, to teach them to be better people.'

A native of Johnson City, Tenn., Williams graduated from Wake Forest University in 1995 with a bachelor's degree in history. He played high school basketball for three years, averaging 10 points and five rebounds as he helped his team to a 24-9 record and ``Sweet Sixteen' finish during his senior season.

Williams served as a junior varsity boys assistant and varsity boys assistant coach at Mount Tabor High School from 1993-1995. He was an assistant varsity boys coach from 1995-1997 at Davie High School.

At mid-season in 1997, Williams was named Davie's junior varsity basketball coach, and he went on to lead the team to an 11-7 record. He then moved to McMichael High School, where he served as the junior varsity boys coach in 1997-98.
