His basketball team won the state championships 50 years ago at Camelback High School. His Arizona State baseball team won the college world series when he was a pitcher for the team. He was college room-mates with my uncle, Mike Rupcich, yesterday's CMN honoree. And he was my junior college tennis coach at Glendale Community College for two years. I was really fortunate to cross paths with Bill Leinheiser at an important time in my life and he inspired me to always give 100% every day.
If you can't find Bill on the tennis courts or in the gym, you may find him at a soup kitchen in Phoenix helping feed the homeless. Please welcome Bill Leinheiser to CMN. Have a great day.
