Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Grover Cleveland "Pappy" Washabaugh (c. 1893 - March 16, 1973) was an American football and basketball coach. He served as the head football coach at Westminster College from 1937 to 1942, during which time he compiled a 16-26-6 record, and the head basketball coach from 1937 to 1956, during which time he compiled a 296-129 record. Washabaugh's first coaching experience came at Woodlawn High School in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, where he mentored the basketball team and taught physical education. He then coached at South Hills High School for four years before moving on to South Side High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. From 1927 to 1936, he served as South High's head football and basketball coach. In 1937, he took over as the head basketball and football coach at Westminster College. Washabaugh also served as the school's athletic director. In August 1943, Westminster College discontinued its football team. It was later revived after World War II for the 1946 season. Washabaugh continued to serve as the basketball coach until 1956 and posted a 296-129 record.show more
