Hard work, dedication pay off for Cohee

Basketball has long been Jadon Cohee’s life.

He has loved the game since he first picked up a basketball when he was just a couple of years old.

His parents were both former basketball players, but the game wasn’t forced upon him.

The athletic Cohee always excelled at whatever sport he happened to be playing, but basketball was the one for him.

“I always gravitated towards basketball,” he explained.

“I knew from a young age that I loved the sport.

“I just had more fun playing basketball than hitting a baseball or kicking a soccer ball, so I knew that was the sport I was going to pick.”

This was in the seventh grade and what followed was one of the most outstanding careers ever in the province in the history of B.C. high school boys basketball.

Only two basketball players have scored more points in their career at the 4A B.C. high school boys basketball provincial championships, the highest tier in the province. Previously, this level had been 3A but 2013/14 marked the first year a fourth tier had been added.

Cohee, who graduates from Walnut Grove Secondary in June, finished his high school career with 264 points in a dozen games over three years.
