Sheptock was a four-time PSAC First Team selection as a linebacker, a three-time First Team Associated Press All-American, and All-East Region honoree for the Huskies under head coach George Landis. Sheptock was inducted into the Bloomsburg Athletics Hall of Fame in 1997, the College Football Hall of Fame in 2007, the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame in 2010, and was named to the PSAC’s 150 Contributors of College Football in 2019 as one of Bloomsburg’s ten honorees.

Sheptock returns to Bloomsburg after a one-year stint at Misericordia University where he served as the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach. Prior to that, Sheptock was the head coach, and athletic director, at Berwick High School from 2016-19 and went 27-11 overall after taking over for legendary head coach George Curry. Sheptock’s Berwick teams reached the District 2 Class 4A title game in his first two seasons and a trip to the district semifinals in his final year.
