Dedicated on July 17, 2010 at Goettel Park

A team is the best thing that can happen to a person. Knowing that you have a job that must be carried for the group to attain what they are reaching for is important. The sum is greater than all its parts. It’s the feeling of togetherness with fun thrown into the mix. Togetherness is the important thing, but you have to have fun! Coach Bill Hoeppel passed away October 19, 1995 and his wife, Constance passed away October 30, 2006. Together they had two children; Priscilla and Robert.Bill was a native of Chicago and moved to Binghamton at the age of six years. He graduated from North Binghamton in 1938 after starring in football, baseball and basketball. In 1940 he entered SU and played for the Orange Cage team before graduating on the accelerated was program in 1943. Bill student taught in Central Square from 1946-47…took a job and began coaching too. He is remembered for taking the six man team to an eleven man team, winning streaks and even started the recreation program in Central Square and Cleveland. We thank him and his memory lives on!
