When & Where
William "Billy" Anderson
William "Billy" Anderson is the Co-Founder/Football & Coaching Director of the Angel Tree Football Clinic at Stanford. He is the Vice President, U.S. Operations for Children of Grace and a former Regional Executive Director with Prison Fellowship. "Billy", as his friends and former teammates call him, is a former Stanford Runningback and Kick Returner, and was a key member of the two-time Bowl Champion and Nationally ranked Cardinal Football teams of 1977 and 1978. He was the Cardinal Special Teams Captain and the Stanford Football Unsung Hero Award winner in 1978.
Together with colleague Joe Avila (Regional Director, Western U.S., Prison Fellowship) he saw the need to create a positive experience for at-risk and underserved Boys in Northern and Central California. Thus, in 2005, with the help and partnership of the late Coach Ben Parks, Prison Fellowship and the Stanford University Football program, Billy and Joe co-founded the Angel Tree Football Clinic at Stanford. The goal of the ATFC is to bring high caliber, high character former college and pro footballers together with at-risk youth for an annual day of fun, mentoring and encouragement!
