The Lions are coached by Tyler Toney, who enters his second year as head coach at West Linn. In his first season, the Lions went 23-5 and finished in third place at the OSAA 6A state tournament. He holds a career record of 125-33 in six years as head coach.
West Linn currently has six players playing at the Division 1 or 2 level, highlighted by Oregon guard Payton Pritchard – who led the Ducks to their first Final Four since 1939.
Despite graduating four starters from a season ago, West Linn will turn to two experienced seniors (Dawkins and Thompson) and a promising group of underclassmen. Expect the Lions to play a fast-paced, high-scoring brand of basketball utilizing their depth and athleticism.
