Rogalski Tabs Williams as Lacrosse Assistant at Scranton

Jim Rogalski, head men's lacrosse coach at The University of Scranton, has announced the appointment of Edward J. Williams as an assistant coach.

A native of Florham Park, New Jersey, Williams is a former standout player at Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, from which he graduated this past spring with a Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice. He was a four-year starter at midfield for the Warriors, earning first-team all-Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) honors in 2009 and second team in 2010, and served as tri-captain this past season. He finished his career with 97 goals and 40 assists for 137 total points. He played a key role on a Lycoming team that posted a 23-5 record over the past three seasons under head coach Brian Anken, including a 9-1 mark and tie for first place in the MAC in 2009.

"We are very excited to have Ed as a part of the Scranton Lacrosse family," says Rogalski. "He possesses the knowledge and experience that it takes to be successful at the Division III level on a daily basis. His dedication and work ethic have had an immediate impact on the program. He will prove to be a valuable member of The University of Scranton community and will be a positive role model for the young men in our program."

Upon graduation from Lycoming, Williams served as a volunteer recruiting coach for the Warriors. During the summers of 2006-2010, he also worked as an assistant director and sports director for the Florham Park Day Camp, managing sport activities and events, organizing camp activities and field trips and providing a fun and safe environment for campers.

At Hanover Park High School, Williams was a three-year letterman and team captain of the boys' lacrosse team and played four years of football.

His younger brother, Joseph, is currently a senior on The University of Scranton wrestling team.
