PROSPER — Zane Williams put together a fantastic high school career at the attack position for Prosper lacrosse and had a fantastic 2018 season, scoring 53 goals and racking up 44 assists all in 20 games of play.
He also earned an offensive MVP award and the total of All-District Attack for North Texas High School Lacrosse Region for his productive season.
Off the field, Williams attends Legacy Christian Academy, where he plays varsity basketball and is as successful in his academics as his athletics as an active member of the National Honor Society and the Legacy Service Organization.
Williams fell in love with the game 8 years ago after he began playing in the then newly formed Prosper youth program. Quickly he excelled, eventually playing club lacrosse year-round on some of the best clubs in North Texas: Team North Texas, D Select, 3D Dallas, 3D Texas, C2C lacrosse, and Sentry Mustangs.
All of this toil and hard work has added up to Williams getting the opportunity to play at Rollins College in beautiful Winter Park, Florida, for the class of 2023. A competitive NCAA Division 2 program that went 7-7 overall and 4-3 in conference play in the 2018 season.
Besides finding success in his athletics, Williams will also be hoping to do big things with his academics while attending Rollins. He has been accepted into the 3/2 Accelerated Management Program in the Crummer Graduate School of Business where he will hope to receive his Masters of Business Administration in 5 years.
“I love the small close-knit atmosphere there,” Williams said of his decision on attending Rollins, “I’ve gone to smaller schools my entire life so I was looking for that in a college, plus its close to Orlando, so, that was a key factor.”
Though heading to the next level, Williams is reflective and thankful towards all the people who helped him get there.
“Thank you to everyone who helped me on my journey,” Williams said, “family, coaches, teammates; this wouldn’t be possible without them, everything I’ve learned has been from them.”
