Info: Winslow Township HS, ATH Bill Belton is quickly becoming a top prospect. He currently holds nine offers and is possibly going to be receiving his tenth from West Virginia. He is a dynamic player who is talented enough to play at multiple positions. Belton has great speed that allows him to get to the corner and cut it up field in a hurry. He compares himself to another talented speedster, Minnesota Vikings receiver, Percy Harvin. Playing like Percy and idolizing Barry Sanders growing up, are two phenomenal athletes to mold himself after. Belton has talent and schools are taking notice. His dream school is Penn State but admits distance is not a factor in deciding a college. He has taken unofficial visits to Penn State, Rutgers, Maryland and Pitt. Belton says academics are one of the biggest factors in deciding which school to attend. Other things he is looking at are campus life, tradition and coaching stability. Belton currently has a 2.9 G.P.A. and plans on majoring in Sports Medicine. After college he hopes to play in the N.F.L. or use his degree to become an Athletic Trainer. For the immediate future, Belton just wants, “to play football for a major BCS school.” He is working hard to accomplish his dream of playing college football. His #1 goal is to be the top player in the country. He feels he can accomplish this goal by what he brings to the next level. According to Belton those aspects are “Everything from a great person to a great football player who can line up anywhere on the field.” Belton is anxious to get onto the field for his senior season. He is hoping to be able to accomplish his biggest goal for the year and that is leading his team to a championship. He has enjoyed his high school career so far and will always remember making the All-South Jersey Team. He credits a close person in his life Joe Shelton for being the most influential person in his life because he helped him through a lot of situation. Belton feels his skills are best suited for a spread-offense and would like to work on his straight-line speed.
