One of three seniors on this year’s LSU squad … Hard-worker that walked on to the Tiger team after spending three seasons as a member of the LSU football team … Was a punter for the Tigers in football … Considered to be the most improved player on the team by coach Greg Jones … Worked extremely hard on game during the summer and is expected to be one of the “go to” players for the Tigers this year … Long hitter and a very good ball striker.

“Billy is kind of the folk-hero on the team. He played football and walked on the golf team and he’s one of our top two or three players as we head into the spring season. He’s one of the best ball-strikers at this level and his work ethic is unmatched”
— LSU coach Greg Jones
