Bill Faller

Yakima Valley College
Class of 1991

After 23 seasons Bill Faller racked up close to 600 baseball wins with the Yakima Valley Community College Indians. His Indian teams won 18 league championships and 11 conference championships, with seven of those conference titles coming in a 10 year span. A college teammate of Bobo Brayton's at Washington State University (1946-1948), Faller came to YVC in 1961, taking over as both football and baseball coach, and continued in the dual role for four years. His fourth and final year as football coach proved to be YVC’s best season ever on the gridiron as the 1964 Indians won the conference championship with a 7-1 record. His four year football record at YVC was 19-15.

Faller also served as assistant basketball coach under Ellwood Crosier for two years and from 1967-72 was assistant athletic director under Glen Sherar. He became athletic director and division chairman when Sherar retired in 1972 and continued as athletic director until his resignation from that position in 1983. He also served as YVC’s conference athletic commissioner and as a Region III representative on the NWAACC Executive Board.
