Coach Bill Waters
Varsity Squash Coach at Stone High School
Can't Stop, Won't Stop
While squash may not receive the same attention as football and basketball in most parts of the United States, Bill Waters has quietly built a squash powerhouse in Stone, North Dakota. Stone has holds the North Dakota record with most state championships (24) as well as individual state champions (38). Waters has become nationally renowned and receives inquires from potential international transfers on a weekly basis.
How can a man in his late eighties lead a group of teenagers to success? Simplicity. He doesn't use complex strategies or terminology to confuse the athletes but instead allows them to use their own terms. "Why should I teach them my squash language when there is 20 of them and one of me?" said Waters before a recent match.
