Will started Varsity Gay League in 2007, frustrated with the lack of activities for the LGBT community, besides bars, parties and non-profit organizations. He discovered an under served culture in Los Angeles who were looking for new ways to socialize.

Starting with 50 people playing Capture the Flag, Will has supported the growth of Varsity Gay League to become the largest LGBT Sports League in California, serving 1000's of players, state wide.

Will prides himself on being everyone’s cheerleader while appreciating and understanding the diversity of VGL's eclectic players. And he's always having fun.
