Sidney Lanier lost a legend.Coach Moseley with two special Lanier Players

It’s more than just wins and losses. Bill Moseley was a legend because of the impact he had on lives, not games.

Sad news swept through the Lanier community on Tuesday. The legendary coach died on Tuesday morning. He was 92 years old.

Long after his football coaching days with the Poets and the University of Kentucky, Moseley continued to be a role model for his former players. To quantify his influence, one of his former players, Paul Turner, put it best: “How many coaches do you know after 60 years are still meeting with their ball players?”

“Bill’s Boys,” as Turner called them, frequently went golfing with Moseley and met for lunch every other month. Like with many of his former players, Moseley and Turner stayed in touch after high school and grew to be close friends later in life.
