Whatcom Hoops Boys Top 30: #5 Wyatt Stephan

In an incredible season filled with outstanding players, Whatcom Hoops is ranking the top 30 boys. Each day we’ll feature an amazing player in our county and count down until we get to #1. So join us daily as we honor the best of the best.


Wyatt Stephan, senior, Bellingham

WHY HE’S #5: Stephan was the Bayhawks’ leader not only in almost every statistical category but in competitiveness, which helped drive Bellingham to its best finish in years. The athletic 6-foot guard could drive inside or shoot from long distance, averaging nearly 17 points a game. And his 2.3 steals a game helped him set the school’s season and career records in thefts. He was a first-team all-Northwest Conference pick and was chosen to play in the all-state seniors game.

COACH BRAD McKAY: “Wyatt was our do-everything guy. He played at a high level on both ends of the floor. He was a special player when he had the ball in his hands and made everyone around him better players. He was a joy to coach and an intentional leader in our program. We are really going to miss him for what he did on and off the court for us.”
