Collin Williams has a history of achievement on the tennis court and the Canterbury High School senior will continue in that regard at the collegiate level.
Taylor University men’s tennis coach Don Taylor recently announced the addition of Williams to the Trojans’ 2012 recruiting class.
“Collin has had a very successful career in a very competitive high school tennis program,” Taylor said in a release. “I expect him to bring that experience and his skills to help our program."
Williams earned All-State Honorable Mention honors as a junior playing primarily doubles. He and his playing partner registered a 20-4 record last season and a 25-1 mark this season.
"He has had a lot of experience in doubles, and I am expecting him to help us in doubles, which is one area in which we need to make improvements," Taylor said. "He is a good student and a nice young man who should fit well in our program.”
A student-athlete award winner and an All-Area selection each of his last two seasons, the 6-foot-3 Williams helped Canterbury to a state championship appearance and a 25-2 record last season and a regional championship during his senior season.
"The community (at Taylor) was awesome when I visited,” Williams said. “Unlike other schools I actually felt like I belonged. This is the place that God has called me to be. I am also really excited to play tennis and that was another big reason for me to come to Taylor.”
Williams plans to major in physics at Taylor.
