Greenville High School junior and state three point champ Will Schaufelberger was recognized Tuesday afternoon by Country Financial for his recent victory in the three point King of the Hill contest. Country Financial and the Illinois High School Association sponsored the King of the Hill competition last month.
Schaufelberger, the IHSA 2A three point champion, defeated the 1A, 3A, and 4A state champs to win the title.
“It was a great experience,” Will told WGEL. “It’s an experience you don’t know if you’ll ever get to have a chance to be part of again. It’s in such a big stadium and it’s just cool to win it this year after getting close last year.”
Eric Craycroft with Country Financial presented Will with a souvenir basketball and a $500 check to benefit Greenville High School. Will Schaufelberger is the son of Pat and Dieardre Schaufelberger, of Greenville.
