Sean Schellenger, a former quarterback for the Red Raiders, has been posthumously inducted into Coatesville High School’s Athletic Hall of Fame, writes Fran Maye for the Daily Local News.
Schellenger was killed near Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia on July 12.
His parents, Mark and Linda Schellenger, accepted the award at a ceremony at the Coatesville Country Club.
“There’s a lot of pain,” said Mark Schellenger. “But that young man lived a great life. If he was here, he would say ‘I love you, Coatesville.’”
In addition to playing football, Schellenger was also a star wrestler. He finished his wrestling career as a three-time state qualifier with 127 career wins.
After graduating from Coatesville in 1999 and later from Penn State, Schellenger founded Streamline, a residential and commercial real estate development company. He also founded Helping Hands Philadelphia, which helps offer opportunities for all residents to feel safe and capable of success.
According to his father, Schellenger would do anything to help others.
“No matter what you had done in the past, he would give you an opportunity,” he said.
