Career

Middle school

William consistently played with his brother John John, joining him on the team that won the first two iterations Ohio Middle School State Championship. The brothers would place t-8th at the 2015 MSNCT and 5th in 2016.

After John John's graduation in 2016, William led Miami Valley to again winning the state championship and placed 4th at the 2017 MSNCT.

William placed 2nd at the 2017 National History Bee (eighth-grade division) and won the National Citizenship Bee.

For his solo performance at the Copley Middle School Invitational, he was named Middle School Player of the Week by NAQT. He was voted Middle School Player of the Year.

High school

Though still in middle school, William played in the high school program in 2017, placing 17th at the 2017 JV National History Bowl and 2nd at the 2017 SSNCT; he also attended the 2017 HSNCT and the 2017 NSC. William was the only player during that season to attend the MSNCT, HSNCT, and SSNCT.

After beginning high school, William rejoined his brother as second scorer. In the absence of John John, he lead the A team to third place at the 2018 SSNCT (Open division), and was the tournament's second-highest scorer. The following week, he led the team to an undefeated prelim finish at the OAC State Championship (which placed second, with John John in the afternoon).
