Former Snow Hill Great Dies From ALS

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, MD - One of the best basketball players ever to play inside Bayside Conference gymnasiums, Sherron Mills, died on Sunday from complications of ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

The 6 foot 9 Mills was an All-State high school player during his days at Snow Hill High School in the late 1980's. Under the late Allen Miller, Mills helped lead the Snow Hill  Eagles to the 1989 Maryland 1-A Boys Basketball State Championship. He still holds the record for the most points, 47, in a MPSSAA state tournament game.  

Mills went on to play three years at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, and after graduation he was taken with the 29th pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the NBA.  Sherron didn't make the T-Wolves roster but would next go on to play professionally overseas in Spain, Italy and France.

No word yet on funeral arrangements for Mills. He lived in Salisbury with his wife Shondra, and daughter Sherriah, and is also survived by an older son.
