Bill Manwarren ’52

Bill Manwarren ’52 passed away in March 2012.  He was one of the legendary basketball players in CCA history.  At 6-feet 5-inches, Manwarren was a dominate center who led the Pilots to a 13-win 2-loss season in 1951-2.

In an era when high school teams commonly scored 35 to 40 points in a game, he recorded back-to-back individual efforts of 37 and 39 points.

His team’s only losses were a last minute upset by the JVs and a date when Manwarren and his flu-decimated teamates were required to play two games in one day at the Southern Oregon Invitational Tourney.  The Pilots played no home games in that season.

Throughout his life, Bill Manwarren was a great friend of missions and was involved with Enlace Ministries.
