Sidney Lanier lost a legend.
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.

As graduation season commences, several former high school friends are planning gatherings to celebrate significant milestones since they wore caps and gowns, and left the familiar nests of their alma maters.
2015 marks the year several will come together for Golden Year reunions, but members of Sidney Lanier High School's Class of 1955 have already topped the charts, returning to the Capital City 60 years since their commencement ceremonies.
