Will Coble joined Davidson Day in the 2nd grade.
Will has been an official leader on the Varsity Basketball team since his freshman year, but it is not an exaggeration to say that he has been a part of the team since second grade. Will’s dad, Jeff Coble, is one of our basketball coaches, and starting at 7 years-old, Will had special access to the team. He observed players during practice, attended games, chased basketballs, helped clean up after practices, and loved every minute of it. It was also in lower school that Will began to play competitive AAU Basketball year-round. He has maintained this commitment to AAU throughout high school, which has required him to travel extensively and to devote more weekends to tournaments than he can count.
Will helped lead the Patriots to their first-ever state championship win this year as a senior, and he earned All-Conference Honors.
Coach Ron Johnson: "It has been a pleasure watching Will develop as a player and person over the years. His commitment to the Davidson Day basketball program, and his overall dedication to improving as a player is admirable. His versatile skill-set was a major reason we were able to have so much success this season. I look forward to watching his continued growth at Randolph-Macon College."
Director of College Counseling, Mrs. Tia Hill: “In his junior year, Will faced a major turning point when he was forced to have knee surgery that limited his physical activity, including basketball, for weeks. Will has always known he loved the sport, but this experience reinforced the fact that he NEEDS the sport. Basketball is in Will’s blood, and he is determined to continue playing for as long as possible.”
Outside of school, Will is an active member of Bethel Presbyterian Church, and he loves to fish in his free time.
Will will play basketball for Randolph-Macon College next year.
