Doug Staveley, BPE’68, was recently inducted into the Richmond Sports Wall of Fame.
Staveley flaunts an impressive career in both athletics and coaching. As an undergraduate student, he played for UBC Thunderbirds’ rugby and football teams, while volunteering as an assistant football coach at Steveston High.
Hired by Steveston High after his graduation, Staveley was appointed co-head coach in 1972. Staveley led the Steveston Packers football team to become one of the top football programs in BC. He also had a hand in coaching the Steveston boys intermediate and girls senior basketball teams and in 1984 and 1993 had a part in two of the biggest, championship-producing victories in Steveston High history.
Staveley continues coaching football since his retirement.
Congratulations to Doug on this momentous achievement.
