The oldest sister had a son that played for Concordia in the early nineties and was a defensive end. They have grandsons that are strong footballers. Someone else stated that the Kost girls (from Casselton) are also related and yes, they are cousins. Bethany Kost was a strong VB player for the Squirrels in the early 2000s when Casselton took the state VB title.
There is a sister in Minnesota that has a family of basketball players and coaches that continue the sporting tradition. The girls were standouts for the Kittson County Wolves in BB, SB and VB. One sister had a baseball player who played for the RedHawks, too.
It truly is a great sports family and each family does what it can to get to all the other fams games. You gotta love those sheldon boys. Now each of them has one boy. Jay has one of each, Todd has 2 girls and 1 boy, Scott has 2 girls and a new boy. Don't be surprised to hear that Sheldon name again in the future!
Way to go Dorothy! (and Jeff)
Seems like everyone is giving Dot all the love. I'll agree she's great, but let's not forgot the man that began this all Don Sheldon, Fargo, ND, US of A. He is Jeff's father who married Dot. And Jeff, what else can we say, the man is a living legend. A great son, husband, father, neighbor. All around great lineage.
