Phil Schoff was a forward for Syracuse basketball for three seasons. Schoff was an excellent perimeter shooter and solid at the free throw line. He was also an oustanding baseball player, pitching for the Orangemen and earning three varsity letters in baseball.

Schoff would earn a starting berth on the varsity roster his sophomore season, and would be productive early, leading the Orangemen in scoring three of his first five games. He would score a career high 30 points in his fifth career game, a loss to Cornell.

Schoff would lose some playing time his junior year with the arrival of several sophomores including Dave Bing, and junior college transfer Chuck Richards. However, Schoff remained a valuable member of the rotation providing the perimeter shooting the team needed. He would provide the same role to the team his senior season too.

Schoff would become a teacher after graduation and would teach at this high school alma mater in St. Johnsville. His daughter Caryn Schoff would play for St. Johnsville's girls team, and would set the New York State girls scoring record with 3,548 points. She would go on to play basketball for the Syracuse woman's basketball team.
