Vicksburg native and former Warren Central star football player William Prince continues to make an impact on college athletes as he enters his third season as assistant strength and conditioning coach at the University of Southern Mississippi.
Prince is a graduate of Warren Central High School where he had 2,367 rushing yards in his three varsity years. He went on to star at Mississippi State University where he started all four years and scored 15 touchdowns.
Before he joined USM’s coaching staff, Prince worked as a strength and conditioning coach at Alcorn State University under then head coach Jay Hopson. In his four years with the Braves, Prince helped lead the team to two SWAC Champions in 2014 and 2015.
Prince joined Southern Miss five years ago as special assistant to head coach Hopson who had moved to USM. As assistant strength and conditioning coach, he is in charge of developing the Golden Eagles into better players through running and weightlifting.
The Golden Eagles play their season opener Thursday against South Alabama at 8 p.m.
