LaShon Sheffield still says he didn’t travel.
Two seasons have passed since the 6-0, 160-pound guard from Memphis, Tenn. led Tarleton State to back-to-back NCAA Division II South Central Region championships and appearances in the Elite Eight, and Sheffield has nothing but positive memories of his time spent wearing the purple and white.
These days, Sheffield is still playing basketball, still loves the sport and still says the only way he knows how to play is all out, all the time. “Just work as hard as you can at every single thing you do,” Sheffield says.
That’s it. That’s the big secret Tarleton head men’s basketball coach Lonn Reisman has taught Sheffield and so many other Texans past and present who have lifted the program to the elite level where it now stands.
Work hard - and don’t travel.
