Basketball Coach Robert “Dondi” DeShields Scores 300th Win

In the decade since Robert “Dondi” DeShields became head basketball coach at Community College of Philadelphia, the men’s team has won at least 300 games, eight regional and six state championships.

This impressive record makes DeShields possibly the “winningest” basketball coach in the region. No one can say for sure, however, because the Eastern Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference (EPCC) and the Pennsylvania Collegiate Athletic Association (PCAA) do not keep official records on individual coaches.
