Biography: It’s little wonder that a high school football coach who would play future pro football quarterback Zeke Bratkowski at pulling guard in high school would have made a niche for himself in another sport. Danville’s Paul C. Shebby is just that coach. The dynamic Shebby built Schlarman HS into an athletic power from 1948-57. Although he coached all sports, his football teams were feared throughout the state. His basketball teams made 4 state tournament appearances: 1953 (4th place); 1958; 1960; 1961. His squads posted a 270-115 record over those years. Paul finished his career as the athletic director and football coach at Danville HS. Paul Shebby passed away on June 23, 2000.
