OCHS Team Manager One of Aces' Most Loyal Fans

There's typically some kind of a routine in football practice. At Owensboro Catholic, the manager takes a lot of pride helping the Aces maintain a winning program.
There's typically some kind of a routine in football practice.  At Owensboro Catholic, the manager takes a lot of pride helping the Aces maintain a winning program.
    Fill, empty, repeat.  It's the daily grind for OCHS manager Bill Boehm.
     "He's the most important coach we have on our team," says head coach John Edge.  "Bill's been here, actually, for about thirteen years. Every day he's out here doing the water, even in spring drills."
     He's not exactly a coach, but he's so much more than merely a waterboy.
     "It's very very important to me that nothing ever happens to one of these young students," says Boehm. "I'm just tickled to death with Catholic Hgh."
     The school, the coaches, the players .. are just as tickled to have him on the sideline.
     A bad back makes it tougher, but a vibrant spirit makes it easy.
    While he won't be suiting up like a certain 90's movie character, Boehm is always there, always ready and always willing.
     "He means a lot," says starting QB Houston Hartz.  "He's always giving us water and doing everything we need, if your helmet needs aired up he does that, he tapes us up."
     "I told John if he ever retires, I'll quit too," says the 67 year old.  "But he's 36 years old with four kids so I don't see that happening any time soon."
     So boehm will be here with his so-called adopted family.  He'll be keeping future generations of Aces happy, healthy and most importantly... hydrated.
