Boys BasketballFor Todd Schayes, the school's head coach since 1993, “playing basketball for Kent Denver means representing your school, your family and yourself in the highest form of sportsmanship, character and class. It embodies the core values our school stands for.”

Coach Schayes asks his players to set personal and team goals, and he wants his players to learn from the success, as well as the adversity, that comes with playing high school sports—applying these lessons to their time in high school and beyond.

In his nearly 30 years of coaching the Sun Devils, Coach Schayes' teams have routinely been among the best in the state. That includes numerous league, district and regional titles, five state title game appearances—most recently in 2024—and a state championship in the 1996-97 season.

Three of Coach Schayes’ players have been named 3A State Players of the Year, and 11 have gone on to play college basketball, including seven at the Division I level.
