PSA Mourn Loss Of American Callahan

 

PSA Mourn Loss Of American Callahan

The Professional Squash Association (PSA) have today paid tribute to former Princeton Men's squash coach, and one of the most influential figures in American squash, Bob Callahan, who tragically passed away on January 27, 2015 aged 59.

A respected squash coach, Callahan led the Princetopan team for 32 years before his retirement in 2013 and led them to three national titles, ten Ivy League Championships and saw Princeton win more Skillman Awards for sportsmanship than any other college in the US.

He also founded and ran the world’s oldest squash summer camp and in 1998 directed the World Junior Men’s Championship - the first time a world championship had been played in the US. He leaves his wife, Kristen and five sons, all of whom played squash under him at Princeton.

PSA Chief Executive Alex Gogh said: "We were devastated to hear the news about Bob and our thoughts and condolences are with his family and all his colleagues at US Squash and the collegiate game at this very tough time.

"Bob was one of the most affable and likeable characters involved within the squash community but also a man who was held in the highest regard by all those who knew him and someone who inspired other. He will be sorely missed."
