Ex-Quincy track star, Billy Marquart is on the rise in Tinseltown.
He has been gruesomely murdered...on the Silver Screen, thanks to a little Hollywood Special Effects magic.
Been knocked clean out in the boxing ring, by Oscar De La Hoya no less, in a television commercial.
And yes, he's appeared in various states of dress and undress for every men's fashion magazine that exists.
Not to mention being dressed down in front of the entire nation by one of the meanest reality stars in the biz.
It's all in a day's work for Billy Marquart; a young man flirting with fame. And yet still proudest of the school relay record he shares under Kerry Anders' tutelage on a Gem City Track.
