Prosper’s Rock Hill High School has selected Stephanie Shaw, currently the Byron Nelson High School Head Girls Basketball Coach, as the Girls Basketball Coach.
Coach Shaw comes to Prosper after coaching for three years at Byron Nelson High School in Trophy Club, Texas, near Lake Grapevine, where she was named the 5-6A Coach of the Year coaching the team to the first Bi-District game in four years.
Before Byron Nelson, Coach Shaw’s career was in Oklahoma where she served as Head Coach and Associate Athletic Director at Claremore High School.
Before coaching at the secondary level, Coach Shaw coached for six years at the university level as Assistant Coach at Oklahoma City University, Assistant Coach at Wayland Baptist University, and Head Coach for Northwestern Oklahoma State University.
Coach Shaw earned her Bachelor of Science in Physical Education from Wayland Baptist University where she played basketball receiving several recognitions. She then earned her Master’s in Secondary Education from East Central University in Ada, Okla. She is certified in Physical Education K-12 and is a Registered Athletic Administrator.
Coach Shaw says: “Athletics is a tool that should be used as a reflection of life, in order to prepare young student-athletes for the trials and tribulations that they will face later in their lives. … My goals every year are to prepare my players and coaches with the tools to become better people on and off the floor. I strive to not allow student athletes or coaches to accept themselves as they are but, instead, show them a vision of what they could become, and help them achieve that vision.”
