This outstanding quarterback holds many of H-SC's season and career passing records.  During his career he threw for 4,586 yards to set a school record.  His 1,637 yards passing during the 1978 season was a school mark for 12 years until broken by Dwayne Bowyer in 1990.

Other records he held include most completions in a season (132) and career (355) and most completions in a game, 23 versus Randolph-Macon in 1976.  His older brother, Ben, was an outstanding receiver at H-SC and the Newell-to-Newell combination was a staple of H-SC football for several seasons.

Also a member of the H-SC baseball team, Bill is currently a senior vice president at First Union National Bank in Greenville, SC.
