More on Coach Cho: 

A coach, educator, and community builder, Marshall Cho has been a passionate advocate of basketball throughout his decades-long professional career. His unconventional journey from South Korea to the U.S., then to Africa and back again has instilled in him a wealth of experiences and expertise across a range of diverse cultural backgrounds, mentoring athletes at the college, high school, and youth levels and building bridges through the game of basketball both on and off the court. 

Marshall served for eight seasons as the varsity boys basketball coach at Lake Oswego High School, where he earned the distinction of being among Oregon’s first Asian American varsity boys basketball coaches. During Marshall’s tenure, he won the Three Rivers League title for three consecutive seasons as he was named league Coach of the Year each year. For more on Marshall Cho click HERE
