Coach Williams has over 15 years of basketball experience in various roles including college counselor, player, high school coach, and YMCA volunteer. He is the owner/director of All-American Basketball Camp.
His story is unique as he never played organized basketball before. He played informally in neighborhood parks with hopes of playing in college. After attending a Fellowship of Christian Athletes' camp, Coach Williams met Paul McGrady, an assistant coach at Southern Nazarene University. McGrady offered him a tryout, and the rest is history.
Coach Williams became a standout player on the 1996 Southern Nazarene University men's basketball team after dedicating countless hours to perfecting his game.
His determination and work ethic allowed him to receive several top honors, including both First Team All-Conference Player and Player of the Year in the Sooner Atlantic Conference (SAC). Most notably, he became the first player in the school's history to achieve the highest honor, being named Division 1 NAIA First Team All-American.
During his senior year, Coach Williams led his team and scored an average of 21.1 points and 7.4 rebounds per game (SAC). He also broke the single game scoring record by scoring 44 points against Wayland Baptist University. His record has not been broken to this date. Last, he accomplished being in the "Top 10" in scoring with over 1,400 points scored.
After a great collegiate career, he played professionally in the United States Basketball League (USBL), Independent Basketball Association (IBA), and in Mexico; was offered opportunities to play Philippines, Venezuela, Germany, Italy, & Greece.
*Holding Basketball Camps for Kids Since 2009*
Under the direction of Coach Dwayne K. Williams, along with a premier coaching staff, All American Basketball Camp welcomes boys and girls aged 5–18 to camps, clinics, and group and private training sessions. These are filled with essential learning of the game of basketball. These camps and clinics put emphasis on the fundamentals of the game and are hosted in a competitive atmosphere, where campers benefit from a wealth of experienced instructors.
All our hardworking coaches complete the nucleus of the camp's instructional methods. They give participants first-hand insight and training on what it takes to improve and develop on and off the court.
We take pride in building each camper’s self-esteem and bringing out the best in them (both mentally and physically). We encourage kids daily to be motivated and understand that what they learn in the camps and clinics can carry them throughout their journey in life.
