Bill Pierce has something to share

If you’re a fan of local sports history, you are going to love this site.

If you just want to find out who was on the 1982 all-GSL team, or how many wins Billy Frazier compiled as the coach at Gonzaga Prep, or how the Rogers football team fared in 1932, you are going to love this site.

If you just like to look through old high school sports photos, you are going to love this site.

We have asked Bill Pierce to share his incredible database of records of Spokane-area high school sports teams.  Over the years, he has compiled information on nearly every football season in Spokane high school history. His records on girls and boys basketball is even more complete. For many years, Bill has been a great resource for area writers, broadcasters, coaches and athletic administrators. Now he will share his information with everyone.

Web team members Gina Boysun and Dan Gayle have laid the programming groundwork to present Bill’s data. Because of the enormity of the task, the team has started with just football. More and more data will be added as the high school season rolls on.

In addition to the data, we will present archive photos and Bill Pierce’s blog, which will appear in this space. Bill will share information he has learned over the years through tireless research. He loves the hunt and when he goes into newspaper archives, or yearbook archives, he pieces together a history that readers should enjoy.
