  • Signed with Philadelphia Union on August 31, 2010 from the Harrisburg City Islanders, the club's USL-PRO affiliate.
  • Played and started in 32 games for the Union in 2013, logging 2190 minutes. In just four games, Williams tallied four assists. Most notably, his two assists on June 29, 2013 against FC Dallas led the team to a 2-2 draw.
  • Has played in ten (10) games this season and started 9 (9) of them. In his 843 minutes this season Williams has tallied one score.
  • Williams is an attacking minded defender who is strong on both sides of the ball. When he’s not shutting down the opponent he often makes marauding runs into the oppositions half and creating chances for the offense.

Star Moment this Year: A great goal in a losing effort against New England on May 17. In the 76th Williams pounced on a loose ball and finished to bring the Union back into a game against the surging Revolution. Williams was active all night, and got a just reward for his energy.
