Bill remembers coming to Keene around 1972 to play horseshoes for the first time at Wheelock Park. A dozen years later, he began to get serious about the game - going on to win many tournaments.

Back in 1994, Bill accomplished an unbelievable record by winning three State Class "A" Championships in a row. His third victory came after seven hours of play and with a lot of "come from behind" determination defeating Mike Donovan in a playoff game with a 73.5 percentage.
In 1992, he won his first Class "A" title with a 7-0 sweep of all games, and a 55.2 percentage. He beat some of New Hampshire's best that day like former champion Phil Bergeron of Merrimack and Mike Donovan of Manchester.
In 1993 he won again, posting a 7-0 with a nice 61.4 ringer percentage becoming only the ninth pitcher to win the men's Class "A" title twice in a row.
