Rob Sheldon was a two-year letter winner in both basketball and baseball. A 1973 graduate in education, he went on to earn a master’s degree in administration from Bowling Green State University in 1977.
Following stints at Ottawa-Glandorf and North Central high schools, Rob moved his family to Bucyrus, Ohio, and took over as head basketball coach at Wynford High School—a position he held for 24 years. In addition to coaching, Sheldon served as assistant principal and athletics director at Wynford.
Sheldon led his teams to nine league championships, 18 sectional championships, seven district championships, two regional championships and a state runner-up finish in 1988 while compiling a 401-156 record at Wynford. He coached in the North-South, Ohio-Michigan and Wendy’s Classic games. In 2003, following his final season at Wynford, Sheldon received the Paul Walker Award, named after the legendary Middletown High School coach.
Sheldon was inducted into the Ohio High School Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2005.
