Their approach to coaching was 3-pronged. They taught sportsmanship, discipline, and teamwork and did it in different ways. According to one former player, “Bill would pat you on the back and George would kick you in the butt”. Bill and George were excellent communicators and superb motivators of young men and these two attributes were the major reasons for the success of their teams. As impressive as the records on the field were, the life lessons they taught their players were equally impressive.

In Addition

Bill coached and umpired for 8 years for the Chatham Minor Baseball Association and coached and refereed for 5 years for the Chatham Minor Hockey Association. He was manager of the Sport Mart Slo-pitch team for 18 years while also pitching most of the games the team played. Since 1993 to the early 2010’s he was chairman of the Dr. Jack Parry Academic-Athletic Scholarship selection committee as well as serving on the Chatham Sports Hall of Fame Board of Directors since 1998.
