Coach McQuade (still can't bring myself to call him Bill) was instrumental in my growth as both a baseball player and a person. Had I not come to Hun and not spent 3 years with him (as both a coach and the head of the upper school) I absolutely would not have made it nearly as far as I did. There were two major things that I appreciated and respected about Coach. First was that for better or worse you always knew where you stood and he always found a way to help you improve. Second, was his unwavering positivity. We could be down by 10 runs in the bottom of the 7th and he'd find a way to get us to continue to compete. There are few people who can do this at such a high level for such a long time and it's an honor to have been coached/mentored by one of them. Congrats Coach McQuade!
