Conemaugh Valley Basketball Coach Shares Life Lessons With Players

Conemaugh Valley’s Boys Basketball Team is off to a record start this season with the help of a Head Coach who was ready to leave basketball behind.

“When my dad passed away I decided to give up basketball.”

After a successful career at Greater Johnstown Trevon Williams went on to play at Penn State Dubois but his final season his life changed

His Senior season was cancelled by the pandemic and his father died

“I didn’t actually get to live out my whole college career because of COVID and then with the passing of my father I just didn’t wanna play basketball no more.”

But with Williams had a relationship with basketball that couldn’t be severed

“Basketball was still always apart of me and it was my way to get away from everybody so helping others was another thing that was apart of me as well.”

Williams has led Conemaugh Valley to a 9-1 record their best start since 2012 but he doesn’t see himself as the traditional head coach

“I just got the title head coach. I’m really just a mentor that knows the basketball game and I love helping others and I love basketball.”

Now Williams says he’s sharing some life lessons with his players that he’s learned both on and off the court

“Control what you can control. You can only control so much. If it’s not in your hands or your control don’t worry about it, you gotta let it go.”
