He has coached at WHS for the past 10 years at both the JV and Varsity levels. Coach Meacham says, “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.

Born and raised on the Peninsula playing basketball and competing in leagues since about 9 years old. Basketball has always been a part of my life. I developed my skills thanks to the great coaches I had along with support and help from fantastic parents. After attending Woodside High School I stayed local and attended Notre Dame de Namur in Belmont, CA. I received my degree in History and Political Science, shorty afterwards I continued with my passion for basketball and persued a new found passion, teaching! For the past 10 years I've been working as a coach, teacher, and trainer for people of all sizes, ages, and levels. I've trained professional players and taught young beginners the basics. Along the way, I learned numerous tricks, techniques, and tactics that have helped me grow as a player and a coach. More recently, I married the Love of my life, Samantha. I earned a Masters degree in Special Education at NDNU. I resigned from Redwood City School District after 5 wonderful years in the classroom in order to continue building my small business pktrainings.com.
