Panthers News · 2019 Springboro Athletic Hall of Fame Class Announcement

On December 6, 2018 the Springboro Community Schools Athletic Department proudly announced
their 2019 Hall of Fame class. The class is comprised of four new members. The 2019 class includes:
Paul Bohaboy (Head Soccer Coach, 1994-2017), Ryan Coates (2012, Soccer),
Sean Kennedy (2013, Baseball), and Sean Welsh (2013, Football).
The inductees were nominated by their peers, and elected via blind vote. The electoral Hall of Fame
Committee is comprised of members of the Springboro Athletic Community with relationships to the
Department ranging from five to 30-years.
“It is a tremendous honor to be nominated and elected to the Springboro Athletic Hall of Fame,” said
Athletic Director Austin Rhoads. “When discussing the four inductees, the word that came up
repeatedly was ‘character.’ These four individuals did things the right way. They should feel honored
to be enshrined as part of our program’s rich history. We look forward to having them back on campus
for Hall of Fame weekend in early February,” Rhoads concluded.
Springboro’s Hall of Fame induction weekend will take place on February 8th and 9th. A public
ceremony will take place on Friday night at half-time of the boys’ basketball game vs. Northmont, and
the official induction will follow on Saturday night at Heatherwoode Golf Club. Please visit for more information and details.
