Former Bluffton boys soccer coach Bill Gaines passed away unexpectedly Sunday morning, July 8, 2018.  Bill was vital in the history of Bluffton’s soccer program as he coached, refereed and served with BFR’s developmental program before being the first Varsity head coach when the program became an official varsity sport in the fall of 1992.  

Condolences to Bill’s wife, Brenda and three children Bill Jr, Josh and Amanda and the entire Gaines family.  Rest in peace, Coach.
