LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Rob Williams recently retired from Lee county high school where he spent the past 32 years leading in athletics.

Williams stepped down from his role as Athletic director on June 8th.

He came to Lee county in 1983 as an assistant after spending eight years at Colquitt County High school.

He is best known for leading the Trojans baseball team to 529 wins in his stint as the varsity head coach. Over the past 40 years Williams has gone from coach, to athletic director, and now he is a retired fan.

Williams handed in his resignation papers in back in March... and the longtime Trojan talked about the hardest part of stepping down.

"Being away from the kids. They keep you young at heart. And then of course there's a great team here at Lee county High school. The administrative team, faculty, they're my closest friends."

Williams says Lee county athletics are in great hands with the current coaching staffs.

And though he is retired, he's still fully invested in their success.
