Coming up through football in Houston, TX and New Mexico Highland University, Kevon found rugby in college before graduating with a degree in Computer Science. Following four straight years of All Conference honors in football, Williams went the direction of rugby joining the Denver Barbarians post-college.

Kevon Williams made his HSBC Sevens Series debut at the 2016 Dubai Sevens Tournament after impressive performances with the Denver Barbarians earned him National Team attention. He scored his first try against Fiji in the 5th Place Semifinal at the following Cape Town Sevens, where he cemented himself as a multi-talented sevens athlete.

In 2017, Williams stunned audiences at the Silicon Valley Sevens tournament where he scored in four out of the six matches contested by the United States. He moved on to suit up fulltime for the 2017-18 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series where he helped his squad clinch their first ever Cup title on home soil at the 2018 USA Sevens. Williams has since been a mainstay and was named to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic squad. Since 2021, Williams has served as Captain of the USA Men's Sevens.
