Billy was one of the most versatile players to ever wear a Viking uniform. In two years of varsity competition for the Vikings he left his mark on both sides of the line of scrimmage. In 2009 Billy was awarded the Defensive Scout Player of the Year Award for his constant effort on the varsity scout teams. This was only a small indicator of what was to come in 2010. His senior season was one of the finest years ever on record for a Viking football player. Coming into his senior year the team was counting on him to shoulder a tremendous amount of responsibility as both a running back and defensive back. On the defensive side of the ball Billy recorded 88 defensive points that included 25 unassisted tackles, 7 assisted tackles and 2 pass break-ups. On the offensive side of the ball Billy carried the ball 60 times for 257 yards and averaged 4.7 yards per carry. He caught 10 passes for 142 yards and averaged 14.2 yards per reception. He also scored 5 touchdowns. As a special teams player Billy returned 10 punts for 121 yards and 16 kickoffs for 379 yards averaging 23.6 yards per return. Billy also punted 22 times and averaged 30 yards per kick. His outstanding senior season earned him First Team All-Western League honors. Along with this distinction Billy was awarded the 2010 Gene Edwards Iron Man Award and the 2010 Most Valuable Player Award a distinction that has been rarely accomplished in Viking football history. In addition to these outstanding on the field accomplishments Billy also earned Union Tribune All-Academic honors in both his junior and senior years. Billy was not the biggest player on the field but his heart and courage are as big as any Viking to ever step on the football field for La Jolla High. He will always be remembered for his unwavering dedication to the program and his coaches and will serve as a constant reminder that you don't have to be a big player in physical stature to find success on the football field and leave a mark that will always be remembered by his Viking Football family.
