Raphael “Ralph” Sheffield, golf pro

Raphael “Ralph” Sheffield grew up in Los Angeles, CA, and went Dorsey High School. He played football and baseball at Dorsey, and he was good. 

He was so good at baseball that he played in college, and he set records at both Santa Monica College and then at Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA. From there, he went on to play in the MLB minor leagues. After that, he started coaching. He coached both football and track at the high school and junior college levels. And, in addition to his athletic career, he also work at Nike.
