Ike hoop star to college coach

Ike hoop star to college coach
His playing days behind him.

But, just tipping off another chapter in his exciting roundball career.

All everything star out of Eisenhower High, hooping on nothing but, high notes in his b-ball days at Central Washington University. Two years ago helping to lead a 26 - 4 Wildcats team to a regular season league championship and tournament title. An outstanding point guard, and as every coach who Drew's ever played for will tell you, so intelligent on the court.....and off. A conference academic all star, .....Central thrilled to name Drew its new assistant basketball coach.

Drew Harris "For a very long time I wanted to do coaching and make it a career. All my coaches I've had in the past thought I'd be a great coach. That was a little more motivation to push through it. Stick with it. Make it a career. So, like one or two seasons here, and, then you're off to be a head coach. We'll see."

It'll be a while for the one time star from Ike....that's Drew...number 31 back in his outstanding Cadet days. so court savvy...but, still so much to learn under CWU head coach Greg Sparling as Drew has absorbed from so many tutors before including former Ike Coach Pat Fitterer.

Drew Harris "Man, old school Remember that stuff? Ya, that was a while back. Seem like a long time ago? Ya. Haven't seen that footage for a long time."

Already a wildcat player's favorite...new assistant coach Drew Harris is in Las Vegas this week recruiting, which he told me he loves.....selling the University to potential student-athletes with his own personal resume of success in the gym and in the classroom.

Drew Harris "I really do like Central Washington University a lot. Not just basketball, but, the whole school, the campus. The community of Ellensburg been great to me. So, I plan on being there a while.
