Ron Cox 
Coulee High School, 1973
Ron Cox was an exceptional football, baseball and basketball player at Coulee City High School, where he played from 1970-1973. His most memorable moments came on the basketball floor where he led his teams to the state tournament all four years. In that span they finished in second place twice and fourth place once. During his junior year, Cox set a State B Tournament record with 67 rebounds in four games (16.7 per game). In his senior season at Coulee City he averaged 25 points, 20 rebounds and shot 65 percent from the field. Cox went on to set another tournament record shooting 73 percent from the field (46-63). He finished his career as the all-time State B career rebounding record holder with 270 rebounds (18 per game), was 9th all-time in field goal percentage (51 percent), 10th all-time in scoring (248 points), and was selected to the All-Tournament Team three times. By the end of his high school career, he had scored 1,823 points, 33rd all-time in the state.

After high school, Cox earned a scholarship to Eastern Washington University where he went on to set many more records. Cox was the top scorer and rebounder all four years at EWU. He is the school’s career leader in scoring, rebounding, rebounding average, field goals made and field goal percentage. His numbers at Eastern were astounding; 1,741 points with 1,273 rebounds (12 per game). He made 729 field goals, while shooting 62.9 percent. Cox is second in the Eastern record books for career field goals attempted and free throws made. He was named an NAIA All-American twice and was inducted into the Eastern Washington University Hall of Fame in 1998. In 1977, Cox was drafted in the sixth round by the Cleveland Cavaliers. When his time in the NBA came to an end, Cox became a successful high school basketball coach at Tekoa-Oakesdale and Lakeside High School. He coached Tekoa-Oakesdale to the State B Championship in 1993.
