An Orange County Pop Warner football coach is being honored for 50 years of volunteering with kids.

Coach Bill Scully proudly talks about his players as if they're his own kids.

"I coached a lot of great kids. I got two doctors, at least two lawyers. I got a kid who's an astrophysicist,” he says.

The 75-year-old Monroe-Woodbury Pee Wee coach began volunteering in 1970 when an FDNY co-worker, who was also a coach, asked Scully to sign on.

Years later, the league has gone on to win numerous awards and championships with Scully as head coach and president, including both the regional and Empire State Champion titles multiple times.
