William “Bill” Perkins enters his first season as VSU golf coach with almost forty years of dedication to the game. Coach Perkins believes the best teachers and coaches are “lifelong learners” who seek to draw out the best of others. He has organized golf teams and developed amateur youth into college players. Despite golf being a sport played by individuals, he believes that playing for the advancement of the team can lead to better performance through motivation.
He attended Norfolk State University, Strayer University and the University of Richmond. He is a long-standing member of the Richmond Chapter of the National Negro Golf Association and other local golf leagues.
Coach Perkins is looking forward to recruiting more local talent, building on the golf team’s current momentum and being a competitive force in the CIAA.
