About Doug Shaw
Long-time Myrtle Beach High School football coach Doug Shaw, who died suddenly November 11, 1994, at age 52 was an instrumental figure in the lives of the youth of Myrtle Beach. He had been Myrtle Beach’s head football coach for 25 years and an assistant coach the two previous years. His football teams had a record of 223 wins, 77 losses and two ties.
They won four state championships and 16 conference titles and competed in the playoffs 23 of his 25 years. After his death a scholarship was created by his family to help student athletes at Myrtle Beach High School continue their education. Now 23 years since his passing we have started the Doug Shaw Foundation and the Doug Shaw Golf Tournament to ensure that his scholarship efforts will continue on making sure we can have a positive impact on students at Myrtle Beach High School.
