BOB ROSTOHAR

Arguably one of the best basketball players ever t suit up for the Green and Gold. Class of 1977 alum Bob Rostohar was surely the greatest scorer to play for the Seraphs. Over the course of 3 varsity seasons, Rostohar put in 1228 points in only 62 games for an average just a touch below 20 points per game (19.8 avg). This came in an era before the 3 point shot, one can only guess how many more points would have been scored by this scoring machine. In his Junior season, Bob kissed the twine for 515 points in 22 games for a school record average of 23.4 points a game. He earned All TVL and All-CIFSS 1st team honors becoming the first Seraph hoopster to be so honored. Facing defenses that were geared to stop the “machine” Rostohar put on an even more astonishing offensive display his senior season scoring 576 points in only 21 games for a sizzling 27.4 per game average and a new Seraph school record. He was a repeat All TVL and All-CIF 1st team selection. The back-to-back All-CIF selections have never been accomplished by a Seraph cager. Rostohar wasn’t just a one dimensional gunslinger as he also the SBH S all-time career rebounder with an even 800 in his 62 games for a 12.9 average. He averaged an unheard of 16.0 rebounds per game as a junior and almost matched it at 15.7 as a senior.
After graduating from SBHS, he attended Idaho State University in Pocatello, ID on a basketball scholarship. Bob did not play much but did make the travel squad, and was able to practice against 2 future NBA players. It was a great and very humbling experience that made him take his education much more seriously. He played for two seasons having torn up his left knee and lost a step he could not afford to loose.

He graduated from San Francisco State University in 1981, with a BS in Business Marketing.



My 4 years at SBHS were some of the best of my life. I was provided an excellent
education, made some great friends, and built a foundation based upon strong morals
and values that serves me today. Thanks you St. Bonnie” -
