Garett Williams will head the Hilltopper football program

By Mike Cote

Los Alamos High School announced  Thursday morning that it has hired Garett Williams as the new head coach of the Hilltopper football program.

Williams was selected out of a pool of five applicants for the position.

For the past two seasons, Williams has worked with the Hilltopper football team. In 2008, he served as C team coach, then was promoted to the varsity coaching staff in 2009. Williams was a linebackers, running backs and special teams assistant coach for the program.

Prior to joining the Hilltoppers’ program, Williams worked as an assistant prep coach at Fort Collins, Colo.

In the college ranks, Williams was an assistant for four seasons (2005-2008) at Eastern New Mexico University and even has some professional football coaching experience. He was the defensive coordinator of the Colorado Venom, a very short-lived arena football team that played a total of one game in the National Indoor Football League before disbanding.

Currently, Williams is a seventh grade science teacher at Los Alamos Middle School and is an assistant coach with the LAHS boys track and field team.

He will replace longtime head coach Bob Scott, who retired shortly after the 2009 season.
