With a decade of experience in recruiting and team coverage, Billy began covering SMU in 2011, joining the Scout site in 2013. Merging with 247Sports in 2017 grew the following, which included multiple coaching searches.

Billy brings experience covering basketball, football and recruiting for Mustang fans, which comes with him to On3 and On The Pony Express.

For SMU fans unfamiliar with his work, Billy covered the Matt Doherty and June Jones eras ending, which led to Larry Brown’s magical run as coach of the Mustangs. Football also elevated during that time, reaching bowl eligibility numerous times under three different coaches. Recruiting coverage never slowed down for Billy during that time.

This fall, Billy got engaged to his fiancé, Michelle. Billy attended SMU in Dallas, graduating with journalism and sport management degrees. He walked on SMU’s football team and spent time in the recruiting department. From 2015-2020, he worked in football operations for the Washington Redskins, advancing road games.

Billy also covers LSU for On3, running The Bengal Tiger.
