Huntington, W.Va. -- Marshall University men's soccer coach Bob Gray announced Thursday that Jeremy Williams has signed a National Letter of Intent to play soccer for the Thundering Herd this fall.


Williams, a native of Wheelersburg, Ohio, joins the Marshall men's soccer program after a solid four-year scholastic career at Wheelersburg High School. The goalkeeper has started for the Pirates each of the last three years In his four-year career, Williams started 57 matches, recorded 36 shutouts and posted a miniscule 0.51 goal against average.


"What really drew me to Marshall was the team chemistry and how they get along," said Williams. "I wanted to be around people who want to succeed, so Marshall was the spot."


Last season, the netminder helped lead Wheelersburg to a 17-2-1 record, a seventh consecutive league crown, third straight district title and finished the regular season ranked fourth in Ohio in Division III. Williams set a new school and Southern Ohio Conference (SOC) single-season record of 14 shutouts was named All-SOC first-team, All-District first-team and All-Ohio second-team.


Williams is equally active off the field. The former captain received the United States Achievement Academy's All-American Scholar Award last year. Williams was a three-year member of the band, Key Club and serves as a teacher's aide in the music department.
