Bill Davis and Paul Heslin

From Holly McAuliffe '57
There were two coaches I had the great fortune of playing for and their names were Paul Heslin and Bill Davis. This was during the years of 1956-57.  . . . They were two men who devoted their lives to developing young boys into men, and inspiring them to perform at their utmost.  On the playing field or on the rink, you would run through a cement wall for them.  I never ran through a cement wall but I wound up with seven concussions playing my heart out for them.  They were great, great people, had a great influence on me, and I'll remember them always.
