Bill was months away from having to end his shooting career with the Army Marksmanship Unit, but making it onto the 2000 Olympic team turned his fortunes around and put him on a new path to shooting success, with this twist on the Cinderella story: he broke his ankle three months before the selection match. Bill attended Isothermal Community College and graduated in 1996. He has a daughter, MaKynzie and a son, Hudson.
