ISU Hall of Fame inductee Holston new SB Lady Chiefs basketball coach
FORT HALL — Donn Holston is the Sho-Ban Lady Chiefs varsity basketball coach.
He graduated from Highland High School and went on to play basketball at Idaho State University. Later, Holston was inducted into the ISU Hall of Fame for his legacy in basketball.
Holston worked at Sho-Ban Jr. and Sr. High School since 2006 — at that time Don served as the athletic director and was the 21st Century Grant Director for the school. Since then Holston has been off and on with the Sho-Ban High School, about two or three years ago Holston served as the Physical Education teacher. Holston has also coached the junior girls and junior boys basketball teams.
Today Holston is serving as a substitute teacher in whichever class he is needed. As girl’s varsity coach, their first game was last week at North Gem.
“It’s going pretty good so far, we don’t have another game till next Tuesday; we should of played at least 3 or 4 games by now, but one of them got canceled because we didn’t have enough JV players, I could have gotten an assistant coach for that, but I don’t need one for right now,” said Holston.
“Our goal is right now is to finish in the top four in the conference so that we have a seed going into the tournament. I really enjoy being here, because these kids are like me, this is a special school to be at, and I’m glad to be here. There are 10 girls on the team right now, and I just want them to play hard. We have a lot of things we can work on, and I didn’t know where everyone was at until the first game, and now I have a better idea of what we need to work on,” Holston concluded.
