Boys Head Coach and Program Director

David Evans

Evans is most known for his playing and coaching career at BYU-Hawaii. As an Assistant Coach, Evans helped the Seasiders become a Division II power in 2000-01 and 2011-14. BYU-Hawaii played for the national championship in 2011 behind All-Americans Jet Chang and Marques Whippy. The Seasiders had a winning record every year with Evans on the staff.

As a player, Evans is BYU-Hawaii’s all-time leading scorer with 2,053 points and is the school’s only 2,000-point scorer. He led the nation in scoring across all divisions as a senior, with 27.9 points per game in the 1999-2000 season. He holds the school record for field goals made, with 748, and has the single-game record with 48 points.

Evans was a three-time All-American and is the only BYU-Hawaii graduate to receive the NCAA post-graduate scholarship.

As a coach Evans took the helm at Lone Peak High in 2015.  

In his three seasons at Lone Peak, Evans amassed a 67-14 overall record, three region championships, one 6A UHSAA State Title, and a berth in the GEICO National High School Invitational (NHSI) where they lost 87-82 to eventual champion Montverde Academy in the most-watched televised game in NHSI history. In addition, he successfully managed 50 coaches and 500 youth playing in the program’s year-round D-League organization and hosted annual summer camps/clinics for more than 700 youth in the community.

Evans coached Frank Jackson (currently playing for the New Orleans Pelicans) during his senior year at Lone Peak and assisted him with earning McDonald’s All-American status. Jackson went on to win the dunk contest and was featured among the nation’s best collegiate players while at Duke. Jackson was named “Mr. Basketball” by the Deseret News after a senior campaign featuring 28 points per game.

Following his stint at Lone Peak, Evans moved to Wasatch Academy in Mt. Pleasant Utah where he transformed the program into a national powerhouse.  Enjoying a combined record of 120-20 from his tenure at Lone Peak High School and Wasatch Academy, Evans has an established track record of high-level team success and developing top players. In addition to achieving a consensus top-3 national ranking, Coach Evans finished the 2019-20 season as the second seed at the GEICO National High School Invitational.  Evans is the first head coach to lead two teams to the prestigious tournament in the process.
