Russ Ahearn was a teacher, principal, and coach, best known for leading the Hebron Green Giants basketball team to the Illinois state title in 1952. With an enrollment of only 98 students, Hebron was the smallest school to win the Illinois state championship when all schools, regardless of size, competed for a single prize. Ahearn also coached at Elgin High School, Woodland High School, and his alma mater, Streator High School, before retiring from coaching in 1957. He continued to teach until 1974.
Russ married Marie Gotch of Streator in 1941. They had three children: Judy, Bill, and Mary Jane.
