Stan Watts | Mormon Basketball Player

[sc:top_left_adsense300x250_1] A successful Mormon coach at Brigham Young University, Stan Watts was one of the pioneers who helped to shape basketball into the game it is today with his fast break style which greatly upped the tempo of games and brought jump shots into greater prominence within the game. After leaving the court itself, he took a position on the sidelines helping to shape younger players into a dominant force in basketball.

Among this famous Mormon basketball coach’s achievements were five WAC championships and various Conference titles. He became the athletic director of BYU in 1970, a position he held onto for six years. [sc:top_left_content] [sc:gallery_link]
