Varsity Head Coach – Shawn Shreffler
The head coach of the Chambersburg Trojans is Shawn Shreffler. The 2015-2016 season will mark his seventeenth year as head coach and twenty-first year overall as a coach within the Chambersburg boys’ basketball program. Shawn has been a part of three district championship teams, 1997, 2001, and 2012, as well as the 1996 Mid-Penn championship team. Thirteen of his sixteen teams have qualified for District 3 tournament action, while seven of those have participated in the PIAA state tournament. Finally, his teams have won 249 games during his coaching tenure and he has lost 164.
Coach Shreffler graduated in 1987 from West Perry Sr. H.S. where he was a quarterback on the football team, a guard on the basketball team, and a shortstop on the baseball team. The basketball team was the first West Perry team to go .500 or better in the MPC. Individually, Shawn’s single-season scoring record of 529 points in basketball lasted 19 seasons before being broken by 6’10” Josh Fry, who played collegiately at UMBC . After high school, Shawn went to Lebanon Valley College for two years, playing basketball and baseball for the Flying Dutchmen, and then transferred to Shippensburg University (baseball), graduating in 1992 with a degree in elementary education and a minor in environmental science. His master’s degree in education is from Ship as well.
It was at Ship where Shawn met his wife, Kris, who currently is a primary reading specialist in the Greencastle-Antrim School District. Kris is from the Allentown area, graduating from Catasauqua High School in 1988. There she played softball and field hockey. They have been married for twenty-one years and have two boys, Evan (15 years old) and Ethan (13 years old).
Shawn has been a fifth grade teacher in the CASD for the past twenty-three years. The first seven were at South Hamilton Elementary, and the last sixteen years have been spent working with children at Hamilton Heights Elementary. Beside his family, teaching, and coaching responsibilities, Shawn also directs summer basketball camps for children in grades K – 12 (nearly 300 campers attend each summer) and coaches travel basketball teams in the off-season.
