Student Spotlight

Moe Williams

Male student with arms crossed, looking at camera, standing in front of championship banners.

Moe is a senior, majoring in sport management. He is also a member of the men’s basketball team. Kutztown University gave Moe an opportunity that no other school did, to study a prestigious major while playing championship-level basketball.

Why did you choose KU?

I chose KU because it gave me an opportunity that no one else gave me. It’s a great campus and it has helped me form great relationships as well as represent my family, my team and the whole university academically and athletically.

Why did you decide on sport management as your major?

I decided on sport management because after I’m done playing professionally I want to still be involved with sports and work in the sports industry.

What is/are your favorite thing(s) to do outside of basketball while at KU?

Outside of basketball I don’t do too much. I listen to music, I play video games and I cook (sometimes). I mostly spend my time doing school work, or working out. You can always catch me in the gym, in the weight room or on the field/track.

What do you think about your first few years at KU and talk about what the success on the court has meant to you? What do you look forward to this year as a senior?

My first year in basketball I red-shirted. We had an amazing season, getting to the PSAC final, but came up short. Watching that, I knew I wanted to be a part of this program. The year after I had an important role. Winning PSAC Freshman of the Year was a good individual accomplishment, but we came up short of our team goal. The next season was a rough one with injuries, broken nose and my ruptured patellar tendon. Now that I’m back, I want to be able to help my team win a championship.

What do you want to do after graduation?

After graduation I plan on playing basketball professionally for as long as I can and then open a facility for basketball training and possibly do skill development for a professional team.
