A WTSA Radio Tribute to Andy Natowich

Denny Robinson and Bill Holiday pay tribute to Coach Andy Natowich, who died October 30 at the age of 95.

Andy Natowich was a long-time football and baseball coach at Brattleboro Union High School.  He went on to win four state championships in football, including a 1965 championship team that is still widely regarded as the best single football team in state history. He continued as baseball coach until 1974 and remained a stalwart presence in the community throughout his life.

Bill Holiday and Denny Robinson, both members of that famed 1965 state champion football team, recalled their experiences with Coach Natowich in this rare, commercial-free, radio tribute, broadcast on WTSA, Saturday, November 8, 2014.
