Combs guided his alma mater to the 2006 and 2008 state championships and six state semifinal appearances in 18 seasons. asked Combs if coaching basketball still enters his mind.

Combs enters the Hall of Fame in the same class as Greg Buescher, who coached Sturgeon to the 2010 state championship while Combs manned the Harrisburg sidelines.
