Roanoke Catholic hires former Hokie star Shawn Good as new varsity basketball coach

Roanoke Catholic School is pleased to announce the hiring of former Virginia Tech basketball star Shawn Good – who coached Christiansburg High School to its first state championship in 2012 – as the new Celtics varsity boys basketball coach.

A 1992 graduate of Fork Union Military Academy where he played for legendary coach Fletcher Arritt, Good played basketball at Virginia Tech from 1992 to 1996, leading the Hokies to the NIT championship in 1995 and to the NCAA tournament in 1996. He was team captain in 1995 and 1996 and finished his Tech career as a 1,000-point scorer.

From 2004 to 2009, he served as head coach at Auburn High School. In 2009, he became head coach at Christiansburg High School, which won its first state championship in basketball in 2012. He was named district coach of the year in 2011 and 2012, Region IV Coach of the Year in 2012, and Division 4 VHSL AA State Coach of the Year in 2012.

“We are extremely excited to bring Coach Good to Roanoke Catholic,” says Athletic Director Matt Peck. “His history of success both on and off the court is just what we seek to further enhance our basketball program.”
