Bill Ross, Paseo '53 inducted into Missouri Sports Hall of Fame

Along with 14 other Missouri sports notables, our own Bill Ross, Paseo 1953, was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in Springfield on February 11, 2006.  Surrounded by family and friends, Bill paid tribute in his 5-minute presentation to those who had helped him achieve this great honor, citing his youth at Paseo, college career at Mizzou, and then his many coaching responsibilities that brought him to the great night in Springfield.  The enshrinement of the 15 men and women was a first-class,  sold-out affair with 1,500 people attending.
