Relocating to Parkland from Connecticut more than three years ago, Will and Odyssa have been thrilled with the new life their family of six is enjoying. Daughter Imani, and sons William, Wayde, and Wes are all active students and athletes.
Will is a CPA and is in his 2nd year serving on the board as President of the Parkland Rangers Football & Cheer Organization. He is passionate about youth development and mentorship. Odyssa enjoys volunteering at the kids’ schools and establishing collaborations with local businesses to benefit the League’s youth program.
Imani was a competitive cheerleader from middle through high school, represented her school in track, played volleyball, competed in swim, and also played the violin in the school’s orchestra. She also volunteered with Parkland Rangers Football assisting with conditioning during the summer before relocating to Texas to pursue a degree in Criminal Justice. William and Wayde are both involved in the Parkland Rangers Football program. Youngest brother Wes, 4, has been anxiously awaiting his turn this year with the Parkland Rangers Football family.
William, 10, attends the 5th grade at Heron Heights where he especially loves Math and PE. Wayde, 8, is in 2nd grade where his favorites are also Math and PE. Wes attends Parkridge Christian Academy where he especially appreciates Math and Arts & Crafts.
During the off-season, the boys meet with their friends after school at Heron Bay Clubhouse to do group homework and swim. They also love playing basketball, running track, time at the park, riding their bikes, and playing Roblox, Madden or Minecraft.
Will tells us, “We are passionate about supporting our kids and our community.” After settling in Parkland, he coached Wayde’s football team and served on the board as President for Parkland Rangers Football & Cheer Organization. Will and Odyssa have both been involved in supporting and raising money for many charitable organizations including Big Brothers Big Sisters, the March of Dimes, the YMCA and more.
“We enjoy being on the field coaching, volunteering, and cheering on the kids during football season and watching NFL, NCAA and NBA games as well as attending sporting events,” Will tells us. “We also work out as much as we can together by taking long walks, going to the gym, or conditioning in the park. We love spending as much time as we can in the pool, on the beach or participating in water related activities.”
The Billings family attends services at Church by the Glades.
