Tommy Williard

"Coach" Williard as the kids call him, has an undeniable talent and charisma for bringing people together. His long-time background as a Rugby player first in high school and then at USF and through community teams has contributed to his ethics in sports management and coaching. The rigorous demands of the sport and camaraderie he experienced contribute greatly to how he interacts with students he coaches on a daily basis. He has been coaching either through P.E. classes, after school at his High School position or through his daytime job as an AVID elect teacher for the past several years. He inspires his students and athletes to engage in community service regularly which instills a common bond but even more importantly gets them thinking about how they affect one another. Regardless of individual skill ability, he gets kids thinking and acting in ways to better themselves, believe in their dreams and create goals for their futures. Years later, former students visit him to thank him for believing in them and teaching them that hard-work is the best indicator towards success.
