For Todd Schayes, Kent Denver’s boys’ basketball coach of 24 years, “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 that our school stands for.”
Coach Schayes asks his players to set personal and team goals, and wants his players to learn from the adversity that comes with playing a sport, applying these lessons to their time in high school and beyond.
Coach Schayes’ team took the State Championship in 1997, and his teams have been State runners-up three times to go with numerous Metropolitan League titles and district championships. Three of Coach Schayes’ players have also been named 3A State Players of the Year, and six have gone on to play Division I basketball.
Coach Schayes is also a full-time member of our Middle School faculty. He teaches in the sixth grade.
