McGee earns HOF honors

Posted

Paris resident Don McGee was recently honored with another accolade honoring his long association with Illinois basketball.

He was recently inducted into the Wheaton-Warrenville High School Sports Hall of Fame. During an 11-year tenure as head coach of the Wheaton Central basketball team, McGee coached the 1981 team to a 26-7 record and fourth place finish in the Class AA state basketball tournament. Wheaton also had the winningest record in the Dupage Valley Conference while he coached at the school.

The recent honor joins others McGee has collected over the years. He is a member of the Chester Sports Hall of Fame as a player from the 1955 team. He is also a member of the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame and the Thornton Township High School Sports Hall of Fame.

After graduating from Chester High School, McGee played basketball at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale and had a 44-year coaching career at several schools.
