About Dave

Dave Williams is considered one of the top strength and conditioning coaches in the country. He helped to develop Liberty’s student-athletes for more than 30 years before his retirement in the spring of 2017. Williams is a certified strength and conditioning coach (C.S.C.S.), who served as Liberty’s head strength and conditioning coach for 21 years (1984-2005). Following the 1992-93 athletic year, Williams was named a finalist for the national Strength Coach of the Year, an honor given to strength and conditioning coaches in the professional and collegiate ranks. Williams was honored by the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association when he was named a Master Strength and Conditioning Coach. Williams, along with head strength and conditioning coach Bill Gillespie, were the first pair of honored coaches at the same institution at the NCAA Division I FCS level with this distinction. Williams earned Associated Press Little All-America honors while playing collegiately at Fairmont State College in Fairmont, W.Va. He played both offensive and defensive line and was a two-year co-captain at Fairmont State, who was NAIA National Champion in 1967. In 2003, the school honored Williams as he was inducted into the Fairmont State College Athletic Department Hall of Fame.

The Men of Armour Campaign

Join us as we raise the funds to name the Head Strength Coach Office in the Liberty Athletic Center after Dave Williams. The effort to name the Head Strength Coach Office after Dave Williams was initiated by many former student-athletes from various teams and generations, in response to the Men of Armour Campaign: an effort to name the football weight room after the evangelical feats-of-strength ministry led by football athletes and coaches in the `80's and `90's. Led by a matching gift from a football alumnus of up to $125,000, gifts of any amount can honor the overall campaign, as well as the donor through Liberty Athletic's Legacy Giving program.
