Bill Dearybury sticks with what he knows.

The Spartanburg, S.C., native’s choices for education, occupation and recreation follow in the footsteps of the Dearyburys before him.

Dearybury, a future football player and golfer for the University of the South, said he has been playing football since he could walk.

“My dad, he played football in college, and he got me into it and I loved it from then on,” Dearybury said.

But before Dearybury competes on the college playing fields, the All-Region quarterback for Riverside Military Academy will spend a week of his summer in Honolulu playing in the King Kamehameha Pigskin Classic. The tournament is reserved for only the best of the best in high school football, according to the Web site for the tournament’s sponsor, Elite Sports International.

Dearybury’s choice to attend Riverside Military Academy came after his older brother attended the boarding school. And he said his decision to attend the University of the South “was a family decision.”

But beyond Riverside and sports, Dearybury plans to study economics, French and business. And business, too, is part of the family.

“My brother and my dad — I keep hearing that they’re good businessmen,” Dearybury said. “My brother is always teaching me, and he’s always, ‘network, network, network,’ and that’s all he ever talks about and I like doing it.”

But Dearybury said he’ll take the packed summer schedule, complete with football camp, in stride. “It’s a fun busy,” he said.
