Bill Oliphant -
2014 Honoree

Bill Oliphant, class of 1964, is a second generation Don. He played
both basketball and baseball for SBHS and while at SBCC
was asked to help coach at the Dolores School. He was
hooked! Soon after, he was the JV Baseball coach and then
moved to Frosh-Soph Baseball where he has remained for
the last 20+ years. He taught on the SBHS Faculty for
many years and when he retired in 2008 he stayed on as
“Coach.” The Santa Barbara Junior High baseball field was
recently named Oliphant Field, the field he has called home
for many years. Many of his former players turned out for
the dedication of the field where he had coached hundreds
of Donlets in baseball and mentored them in how to groom
and take care of the fields. Bill has served as a Director on
the SBHS Alumni Association’s Board.
