Although born in New Jersey, Bill grew up in quite a few states and did not find Lacrosse until his freshman year of high school in Flemington, NJ, and continued to play lacrosse recreationally throughout college. Moving back to Texas in the early 90's there was not much of an opportunity to play except summer leagues and they became few and far. He was very excited to hear that his neighbors (Jason and Desiree) started the Frisco Lacrosse Association and shortly after signed up his youngest son and himself as a coach. Since then he has had the privilege of coaching the cubs for the past couple seasons and looking forward to the next. He has lived in Frisco for 10 years with his 2 sons, his wife Melissa and their little dog Jellybean.
