In 21 seasons, Rob Williams has won more than 440 games-that is an average of 22 wins per season.

During that time, Lee County has sent dozens of players to the college ranks and a number to pro baseball.

Rob Williams calls the Dugout Club Hall of Fame Induction a humbling honor.

Rob Williams said. "This isn't just my honor. This is also our assistant coaches. They are not just assistants. We just work together. My wife and my family provide great support. I am almost speechless."
