Coach B and I used to talk almost everyday when I was a sports editor and part-time AP writer during my undergrad years. He was one the very first adults I interacted with when I came to A&T in 1974 and we seemed to click like we had known each other all our lives. He was truly a great man, with always a smile and a reliable wisdom, which is indeed rare in this world and I'll miss him.
RIP Coach B.

Coach Bynum was was not my Coach in 1971 but he worked out with the players. He was very instrumental in my development as a player. It was 50 years ago when I walked on the tennis courts a scared young man from Charlotte not knowing if I was good enough to play on the College level. Coach Bynum and Roy Moore Jr the late Dr. Moore son and other players were on the court hitting balls. I walk up and he looked at me and said are you the young man from Charlotte I have heard a lot of good things about you welcome to the team. I took his place on the court and just like it was yesterday the first ball I hit was a topspin forehand down the line and Coach Bynum looked at me and smile. From that day I knew that I was at home and I never questioned myself again.RIP to a great Coach Trainer and more importantly a great Man. I hope he will be honored by A&T because he is what AGGIE PRIDE stand for. AGGIE PRIDE
