Coach Anthony Williams

Head Boys Coach/Director of the High School Program 

 

Coach Anthony Williams' love & drive for coaching youth sports comes from the vow he made to himself and to his children a long time ago - that he would NOT  let his children go through what he went through as a young athlete -  a boy with a lot of potential but very few opportunities to play sports and develop into the best athlete he could be.  As Air Max Director of the High School Program & Head Boys Coach, he hasn't stopped fulfilling that promise to this day, and it's a promise not only to his own children but to all the young people he coaches. 

 

Coach Williams has coached youth sports in the DFW Metroplex for over a decade.  He comes to Air Max Elite Basketball with a breadth of experience having coached youths from 1st grade to high school in a variety of sports including baseball, soccer, football and basketball.  Coach Williams' experience coaching youth select basketball include his tenure with the Dallas Hawks as Director of Basketball from 2004-2006.  In 2006, he formed his own organization, North Texas Flight Boys and Girls Basketball Club.  After a successful two years of multiple tournament championships with North Texas Flight, Coach Williams decided he really wanted to concentrate on his love for coaching and in 2009 joined Air Max Elite Basketball as coach for our 7th grade Boys team. 

 

Coach Williams is originally from New Orleans, LA and settled in Mesquite, TX in 1998.
