Broadneck's Williams to attend Navy Two-sport star giving up soccer at the academy

November 07, 1996|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,SUN STAFF

Broadneck's John Williams has received an appointment to the United States Naval Academy and will play basketball for the Mids.

The 6-foot-5, 190-pound Williams just completed his fourth year of varsity soccer at Broadneck and is about to begin his fourth varsity season of basketball under coach Ken Kazmarek.

"I'm going to stick with basketball and am really looking forward to it," said Williams.

Williams, who carries a 3.6 grade point average and scored a 1,200 on his Scholastic Assessment Test, was influenced by his older brother, Chris, Navy junior who plays volleyball.

"I chose Navy because of the opportunities and experiences that are there," said Williams. "It's something I've wanted to do for a long time. As for a career, right now I'm leaning toward getting into the intelligence field."

Williams, a defensive standout, averaged 10 points, eight rebounds and 3.9 assists for the Bruins as a junior. He is expected to play guard or small forward at Navy.
