Don Renuart - MAHOF Class of 2008With Dan Boros, Don was half the duo football coach Phil Sheffield referred to as his “Gold Dust Twins”.

Why not? They were close friends, they were keys to the Middies’ offense and, with Jeff Tillman, were part of the backfield that powered the 1976 Middies to the first Lakeland Conference championship in school history. They were also among five Midview players – including Tillman, Bruce Walker and Art Grella – named to the Lakeland Conference All-Star team at two different positions that season. Don earned the distinction as an offensive and defensive back.

Don was a three-year defensive starter, and he started two seasons on offense. More than once, Renuart and Boros hooked up on successful pass plays when, the truth be told, they really didn’t know what the other guy was going to do.

“I remember several times when Dan threw a pass that missed the receiver,” Don recalled, “but somehow it ended up in my arms”.

Don led the Middies in rushing during the 1976 season, amassing 863 net yards on 141 carries for a 6.12 yards-per-carry average. He also scored four touchdowns and ran for three two-point conversions.

He also starred in the backfield of a strong defensive unit that held opponents to just seven first-quarter points and 85 total points for the season. Don had two of the team’s six interceptions, one each against Clearview and Amherst, and his defensive work earned him a spot on the All-Northeast District first team and he was named to the All-Ohio second team.

Don enrolled at Baldwin-Wallace College after he graduated from Midview and played football for one season. He then transferred to a community college in Florida, and subsequently realized his calling in medicine. He finished his pre-med at CSU and earned his degree in medicine at the Medical College of Toledo.

Don has been an emergency room physician at Fairview Hospital for the past ten years. He and his wife, Jill, have three daughters; Alison, Ruby, and Grace. The family lives in Avon.
