The VL Podcast welcomes Billy Greene: The former UBC quarterback reflects on Shrum Bowl 2010, Holy Cross and Hec Crighton award!

Welcome back to Varsity Letters – The Podcast.

Earlier this week, we let you — our loyal listening audience — know all about our themed, two-part discussion with a pair of past B.C. football greats, who each happened to have played in the last contested Shrum Bowl… way back in 2010!

My, how a decade flies by!

Today, we start the mini-series by inviting former UBC Thunderbirds’ quarterback Billy Greene to the VL-Pod.

Yes, we talk plenty of Shrum Bowl memories, but we also talk about the quarterback’s high school career, and his 2011 award-winning campaign with the ‘Birds.

There’s also time to talk about his new career and the mentors who have played such a huge role in his life.
