    Bill started coaching at Southeast Community College in 1985, heading the women’s volleyball and basketball programs, as well as men’s golf. Highlights of his women’s coaching career include: 224 career volleyball wins, a 40-10 volleyball season (1991) and being chosen basketball Coach of the Year three times (1989, 1991, 1993) all while competing at the NJCAA Division I level. Bill’s golf teams have had significant success, with 15 team trips to the national tournament, including a current consecutive appearance streak of 10. “We look to be the strongest team in the region again, but you have to play and win the 54-hole regional to qualify. We are working very hard to qualify for our 11th consecutive national tournament May 19-22 in Scottsboro, Ala.” The lifetime friendships forged and interacting with the character, ability and personalities of the many athletes has given Bill the most pleasure.“I enjoy being around young adults, and my goal has been to help my players achieve at the highest level possible in the sport of golf and in life.”
