It was Kettner and John Schatzlein who recruited Shaver to be their coach whee Shaver arrived on the SMSU campus in 1969. "I had no experience or back- ground in the sport, but we came to an agreement - I would coach, and they would teach me about wheelchair basketball," said Shaver. Shaver was head coach of the team for 25 years. He is currently an assistant coach for the Mustang wheelchair basketball team. The event is sponsored by the SMSU Learning Resources Center, Physical Medicine, Counseling & Testing Services, Wellness & Human Performance and the Office of Cultural Diversity. i ill Auto & R.V.
