Boston, Mass. - In 2013, he was inducted into the Minnesota State High School League Hall of Fame and a year later, Bob McDonald got the call from the Hall in Boston - the National High School Hall of Fame.

McDonald coached his last official game on March 1st of this year, after spending 59 seasons as a head coach, including 53 with his hometown Chisholm Bluestreaks. During his career, McDonald won three state titles and 1,012 games. McDonald became just the 13th boys' coach in the nation to reach and pass 1,000 wins.
