Ramon Meacham
Ramon has coached extensively since graduating from high school. He did Varsity Skill Development clinics for the AAU in the summer, coached the Los Altos 8th grade team, and then was the Team Manager and a walk on player at Santa Clara University where he graduated with a degree in Finance. Ramon assisted Varsity Basketball at Woodside twice for 2 years (during two separate coaching terms) and he is currently in his 2nd year as the JV Coach at WHS. Ramon says of his career as a player, “I went to East Side College Prep High School, where we won CCS and went to State in the semi-finals. After that, I went on to play at Santa Clara University for two years. I am glad for that foundation that has brought me to coaching at WHS today.” “I love coaching and seeing kids grow in confidence, watching them grow to a higher level. The best part about coaching is the mentoring, seeing kids become men and the life lessons that they learn as part of playing the sport.” Coach Meacham is committed to making the WHS Basketball program great. Although he spends a lot of time on the court, he does love to go fishing when he gets a chance.
