Bryce Coppock, a senior at West Sioux High School, has announced his intention to attend Dordt and join the Defender basketball program.
“We are really excited to have Bryce be a part of Dordt University and our basketball program. He has scored a lot of points in his life, but what makes him special, is his ability to make the players around him better. Bryce is a perfect fit with the young players we have in the program right now. He is tough and we look forward to his leadership in due time,” said Dordt basketball coach Brian Van Haaften.
Coppock averaged 24.6 points per game for the Falcons with 4.5 assists, 3.0 steals and 5.5 rebounds per contest. He converted 55 percent of his field goal attempts and 39 percent of his three-point shots. Coppock helped West Sioux to a 22-3 record this season and the school’s first ever state tournament berth. He earned first-team all-state and all-conference honors at the conclusion of the season. Coppock attended and played for Newell Fonda High School (Iowa) during his first three seasons of high school. He scored 2,207 career points with 424 assists and 333 rebounds. He was a second-team all-state selection in 2018-19 and a third-team pick in 2017-18. Coppock earned first-team all-conference honors four times during his career.
“I chose Dordt because of the great relationship I have with Coach VH and the rest of his staff. I love the support the community brings each night and I think Dordt is a place where I can compete for a national championship,” said Coppock.
Bryce is the son of Shad and Alynn Coppock of Hawarden, Iowa.
