New coach wants to re-energize program

-A A +A

Williams says he’ll stress system, development from varsity to YAFL

By Mike Cote

Garett Williams has been around football for some time now.

With stops at the prep, college and even pro level, Williams has seen football in all shapes and sizes.

Now, he wants to cut his own niche.

Williams was hired Thursday to take over the Los Alamos Hilltopper football program. He is replacing Bob Scott, who racked up a school record 124 wins in his

20 seasons of guiding the Hilltoppers.

“Right now, I’m excited,” Williams said. “I’m honored to be a part of this community in this capacity. This is a step I’ve been working toward for a long time. After being here for two years, I’m excited to try to bring a whole new level of intensity and enthusiasm to this school and this community.”

Williams, whose day job is that of a seventh-grade science teacher at Los Alamos Middle School, assisted with the Hilltopper program for the last two seasons, in 2008 as a C team coach and in 2009 as a linebackers, running backs and special teams assistant coach.

His coaching resume, despite not having previous head coaching experience, is impressive.
