Billy Coyne was the “other” tackle on the Mt. Carmel High School 1954 Championship team. The more highly publicized teammate was, of course, Dan Ficca. But Billy Coyne has an outstanding career on his own…and went on from High School to play extremely well on the college level at Gettysburg.

At Gettysburg, Coyne was a United Press All State selection. He also was a Lacrosse player while there.

He was an ROTC student at Gettysburg and upon graduation was commissioned a Second Lieutenant. While in the service he attended the University of Louise Law School on a part-time basis. He continued to do that until his discharge at which time he enrolled full time at the Dickinson School of Law in Carlisle.

He is still an active National Guard member…and now serves as Assistant Adjutant General of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard.

He practices law, along with his daughter Lisa Marie, in Camp Hill, Penna.
