Bill Crowe

About Bill:

  • Bill's grandchildren attend Y programs and his granddaughter worked as a day camp counselor!
  • He was one of the coaches brought on staff at Athens Academy to start their football program. The 1980 team (pictured below) was the first group to play a varsity schedule.
  • He is not from Athens, but has been connected to the Y since 1955 when the building was located on the corner of Broad and Lumpkin.

Why They Love the Y:

"Having coached basketball, football, and baseball I have a great appreciation for the young men and women that work at the Y with the youth." He shared one piece of advice for our staff, "You are going to have an influence on the young people. Make sure it is positive!"
