Irv Leifer 
Coach

Irv Leifer was the head basketball coach at Renton High School for 30 years.  Most will remember Leifer as the first man to coach four state championship teams.
Leifer began his coaching career in 1947 at Renton High School.  During that time he amassed a career record of 481-302 (.704) including four WIAA State Basketball Championships.  His Renton High School team won their first title in 1953 over Aberdeen.  They were state champions again in 1960 and back to back in 1966 and 1967.  His teams won 12 league championships, three district titles an amazing 72 of 113 post season games.  He only had three losing seasons and two of those still made the playoffs. He was honored as the 3A coach of the year by the Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association in 1977; his final year of coaching. Leifer himself was an amazing basketball player.  He was an All-American as a player on the Eastern Washington University basketball team and is in their Hall of Fame.  He was a charter member of the NAIA Hall of Fame and is also a member of the Washington State Basketball Coaches Hall of Fame.
