In honor of his induction into the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Hall of Fame on Dec. 11, a video tribute to Hofstra head coach Bill Edwards has been released on youtube featuring insights on what has made the longtime Pride coach such a success both on and off the field. The 8:20 video features an assortment of interviews from many in the Hofstra family including president Stuart Rabinowitz, athletic director Jack Hayes, senior associate director of athletics Cindy Lewis and head basketball coach Tom Pecora. Edwards has been Hofstra's head softball coach since 1990 and in that nearly two-decade stretch has guided the program to national prominence with 721 wins, 11 straight conference titles from 1998-2008 and NCAA Tournament regional finals appearances in 2004, 2005 and 2008. The Coach Edwards video tribute was edited and produced by Len Thon, executive producer and director of Hofstra Multimedia Productions.
