Basketball – Boys

About the Program

West High School is proud to offer boys basketball. The Iowa High School Athletic Union sanctions our high school sports for boys. Our teams compete in the Missouri River Conference. Through involvement in athletics, students learn valuable life skills, including teamwork, leadership, and commitment.

Meet the Coach 

Head Coach – CoCo Cofield  

Coaching Philosophy 

We believe in maximizing the full potential of our student-athletes on the basketball court, in the classroom, and in life. In order to do this, we strive to develop character and athletic ability through the following core values:  

  • Hard Work 

  • Accountability 

  • Dedication 

  • Discipline 

  • Believing in the Process 

Wins and losses are a part of the game but creating productive members of society is our ultimate goal.  We Are West, Together as One. 

Meet the Players 

Student-athletes give their all, both on and off the court. Countless hours go into strength, conditioning, and practice to build strong athletes that are prepared to compete. Likewise, our athletes fulfill academic requirements in order to participate in sports.  

Stats & Highlights 

Our students are gracious in victory and defeat. While we compete to win, our athletes know, it’s how you play the game that matters.
