#78 OG William Atterbury - Redshirt Junior, 6’4”, 302 lbs.

2017: Coming off his season ending injury the year prior, Atterbury switched over to right guard where he started 10 games throughout the 2017 season.

2016: Atterbury came on like gangbusters in spring and fall practice, topping the offseason depth chart. He earned playing time in the season opener against Towson, then took over the starting right tackle spot the next week against Northern Illinois. He started the next four games before a broken leg at Cincinnati ended his season.

2015: Atterbury redshirted.

How He Came To USF: Atterbury was a Class 3A all-state offensive lineman at Clearwater Central Catholic High School. The Marauders made it to the state championship game in 2013 and returned to the state semifinals in 2014. Billy William chose USF over offers from Cincinnati, Syracuse, Tulane, C.Florida, Yale, and others. He also had interest from approximately half the ACC.
