Like many WAL athletes, Bill started armwrestling for fun as a kid on school lunch tables, he explains “we didn't call it pulling back then but we had a great time competing against each other, I continued having fun with it until I was 27 until I met a real armwrestler for the first time, Kent Damore, from Mchenry IL. I was actually interviewing him for a job in my construction company and we got on the subject. We then pulled on my office desk, I couldn't beat him, but he said I felt strong. That experience encouraged me to seek out a tournament and when I found a local tournament in my area I was excited to go.” For Bill, his first tournament was an eye opener as he went up against the multi-time world champion Bill Ballinger and got crushed. However, the tournament was a success for Bill as he managed third place. “After that, I found out where the next local tournament was and placed second, I then started winning and went on to win my next seven tournaments in a row, I was hooked” he says. Despite his early success Bill knew that win or lose, he had found a sport for him, he progressed in the sport and went on to win hundreds of titles over the next 30 plus years “I still love it just as much as the very first day professionally competing,” he says.
 
Known as “The Marathon Man” Today Bill still competes at the top level with WAL and he also works as a coach to male and female pullers all over the Northeast and Midwest.
