Jay Glover brings a vast knowledge of basketball learned through years as both a player and a coach in the Great Northwest. He played his high school basketball at Clover Park High School in Lakewood, WA for a WIAA Hall of Fame coach. After successful careers at Wenatchee Valley College (Eastern Region MVP) and Western Oregon University (Honorable Mention), he eventually returned to his high school to join the coaching staff and help the school win it’s first ever WIAA Boys State Basketball Championship in 2011. He has always enjoyed scouting players and is looking forward to helping Washington players get noticed throughout the region and beyond. This state has talent and it’s not all centered at the top. I hope to help get those other players some recognition.
