John Stockton  
Gonzaga Preparatory High School, 1980

John Stockton’s athletic accomplishments during his high school career at Gonzaga Preparatory in Spokane, Washington, and his college and professional career are astonishing.
Most basketball fans have come to know Stockton because of his phenomenal 18-year National Basketball Association (NBA) career with the Utah Jazz. During Stockton’s career with the Jazz, he established himself as one of the top point guards in the history of the NBA.  
Stockton’s accomplishments during his prep career mirror that of his storied professional career.  He was a wonderful teammate who made every one around him a better player. During Stockton’s senior season (1979-80), he averaged over 23 points per game.  Throughout his career he shot better than 56 percent from the floor and recorded 264 steals, 295 assists and amassed nearly 800 total points.
His aptitude for success on the basketball court continued at Gonzaga University from 1980-1984.  While at GU, John scored 1,340 points and dished out 554 assists.  During the 1983-84 season, Stockton led the West Coast Conference in scoring (20.9), assists (201) and steals (109).  He received many awards and honors, including being named the West Coast Conference Most Valuable Player for the 1983-84 season. 
Stockton’s sensational professional career includes being named a member of the men’s basketball “Dream Team” that won the gold medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, the 1996 Dream Team that won gold in Atlanta, being selected in 1996 as one of the “50 Greatest Players in NBA History” and becoming the NBA’s all-time leader in assists (15,806) and steals (3,265).  He was also selected to play in ten NBA All-Star games.
Stockton has continued to own a residence in his hometown of Spokane and has established himself as a vital part of the Spokane community by funding capital projects and donating funds that focus on youth development and training.
