St Cross student Billy Osborn has been awarded a Half-Blue in American Football, the first ever St Cross student to play on the team, and thus the first to win a Blazer in the sport. Billy is a two-time Varsity Champion in 2016 & 2018, 2016 being the first year that Oxford ever beat Cambridge. Billy also won the BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) Silver medal in 2016, the Player Leadership Award in 2017 and the Player of the Year Award this year.

Billy is a former combat paratrooper who served in Afghanistan from age 18-21, and is now a CDT (Centre for Doctoral Training) student in Cyber Security.
