Martin "Tim" Sheerer, a successful attorney and major supporter of the Hall of Fame. A 1954 East Liverpool High School graduate along with Coach Holtz, he then went to St. Vincent's College before receiving an engineering degree from the University of Pittsburgh. After working briefly in a patent law firm, he ended up at Duquesne University Law School and became a practicing attorney in downtown Pittsburgh. His legal work, along with talk show appearances on KDKA radio's Rob Pratte show, made him one of the Steel City's best-known personalities before establishing smaller quarters in Sharpsburg, Pa.

His expertise and communication skills were deciding factors for the Pennsylvania Supreme Court system to select him as a member of their Disciplinary Board in later years.
