The type of people that William Otis "Bill" Little knew and befriended could easily become the topic of conversation around the water cooler, perhaps because many of them were reputed for their achievements in sports and education.
But those who knew Little would consider him to have been just as accomplished in both fields as his distinguished friends.
Little was the sports editor for the Tri-State Defender for more than 50 years, an educator, basketball coach and sports official. He also played in the Negro Baseball League for the Memphis Red Sox and the Kansas City Monarchs as a catcher from 1952 to 1957.
