Shorewood hires Ben Scheffler to coach boys basketball

Shorewood High School has hired Ben Scheffler to coach boys basketball. Here is the press release:

Shorewood High School and the Shoreline School District are pleased to announce Ben Scheffler as the new varsity boy’s basketball coach. Scheffler replaces Marv Morris who retired in February. While at Shorewood for four years, Morris was able to restore the basketball program to a competitive level in WESCO. Morris retires, achieving 300 wins in his career.

This will be Scheffler’s first high school head coaching position, but he comes to the Thunderbirds with an experienced coaching resume. His coaching experience includes head coaching with top level local AAU programs and assistant coaching experience at three college programs, including Seattle Pacific University. Scheffler also had a successful collegiate playing career at Seattle Pacific, and played prep ball at Roosevelt High School.

We are excited to have someone with Ben’s credentials and passion for coaching. He is a man of character and is well respected in the Shoreline and Washington State basketball community. We feel he is a great fit for the T-Bird program and we look forward to working with Ben to provide a great experience for the student-athletes at Shorewood.
