Local coach passes away


first_imgGreensburg, IN—Another local hero has passed away too soon.  John Sellers, or to most of us, Mr. Sellers, passed away on Wednesday.  For the Greensburg community, Mr. Sellers was known for his love of sports and Greensburg Pirate Basketball.  If you recognize the name around the southeastern Indiana region it is because Mr. Sellers played a role in coaching both the young men and ladies at Greensburg Junior High and High School.  Mr. Sellers even had the pleasure of coaching his own sons, who moved on to play ball in college. He also had a love for golf.  If you were a walker on the local trail system, you could often catch Mr. Sellers practicing his chip in the grassy area by the high school if he wasn’t out on the greens. Even if you weren’t a sports enthusiast, Mr. Sellers had a way of showing you his love of science.  For myself, Mr. Sellers was one of several science teachers that encouraged me to continue with the field in college.  He used humor and unique techniques to make even medical biology class a good time. Even now into adulthood, those teachers we learned more than just school lessons, but respect will always be designated by their honorific. Mr. Sellers will be missed by many in the community and the sports world, but none more than his wife Mrs. Sellers (also a Greensburg High School teacher) and his two sons.last_img
