Sheffer, PHS coaching legend, passes at 88
Led Tigers to back-to-back state finishes
The man that put Princeton High School Tiger basketball on the map has died.
Don Sheffer came to Princeton in 1950 to take over the Tiger program. He told the school board he would take the basketball team to state one day, and three years later, they did. Twice.
Sheffer led the Tigers to back-to-back state finals appearances in 1953-54 and 1954-55, placing fourth in the second trip in the IHSA’s one-class system of that era.
