Today, Newport Central Catholic named Ben Williams as its new Boys Soccer Coach. He will be taking over the NCC Boys Soccer program starting in 2020 after serving as an assistant this past season. He takes over the position left vacant by Coach Jeff Martin who will now be serving as the school’s Head Baseball Coach.
Williams, a 2000 graduate of Newport Central Catholic, was a standout in both soccer and track. He was a 1999 First Team All-Region selection for both the Northern Kentucky Soccer Coaches Association and The Cincinnati Enquirer and was also a 1999 All-State Honorable Mention selection.
Williams continued his soccer career at Wilmington College where he was a four year letterman and named captain his senior year. His team advanced to the NCAA "Round of 32" during his sophomore season.
Principal Ron Dawn said, “I am really excited to announce Ben Williams as our new Boys Soccer Coach. It’s always great to have former players come back to coach. With the experience and knowledge that Ben possesses the future is bright for the soccer program here at NCC.”
Prior to assisting at NewCath, Williams was the Head Boys Soccer Coach at Sycamore High School from 2014-2018 and an assistant there from 2004-2013. In 2016, Sycamore won the Greater Miami Conference and he was named Coach of the Year in both the GMC and Co-Coach of the Year in the city of Cincinnati. Ben was inducted into the Newport Central Catholic High School Hall of Fame in 2017.
