We are very pleased to announce that CCHS senior basketball player, Jason Wyncoop, is making history! He is the very first student-athlete to receive an athletic scholarship from Multnomah University!

Jason was just announced the 2015 Southern Cascade League Player of the Year and helped to lead the Challengers to their #6 place in 3A ranking. He also made the 2014 Skyline 1st Team All Conference list while playing for Phoenix High School, previously.

When asked why Jason chose Multnomah University he stated, ‘”I wanted to attend a school that offered a fantastic location, a positive student atmosphere and a chance to grow in my relationship with Christ. MU fulfilled those requirements thus making it a very easy choice. Making history for a university is a rarity – I just feel blessed to be given the opportunity.”

We are thrilled to have Jason join our program. He gives us size, shooting, and a great integrity to what we are trying to accomplish here at Multnomah. -MU Coach Bickley

Multnomah University is currently in the process of being accepted into the NAIA and the Cascade Conference for the 2015-16 school year.
