Hello, my name is Jason Simons. I am truly excited about being the Head Girl’s Basketball Coach at Westview High School! My family will be moving to Omaha from Weston, Nebraska this summer. I can’t wait to start working with the young ladies that will be representing Westview High School! I have spent the past 13 seasons coaching at Bishop Neumann in Wahoo, Nebraska. I was blessed to be a part of 3 State Championships, 1 State Runner-up, and one 3rd place finish. We had a string of 6 straight state tournament appearances broken in 2020. Many of the players I coached were able to use basketball to further their education at the next level. Coaching basketball has given me a means to influence the lives of many young adults over the past 25 years. The game of basketball has taught me many life lessons and I enjoy sharing those lessons with my players. To me, the game of basketball and life is about being a servant leader, about being part of something much bigger than yourself! I can’t wait to start building the Wolverine Culture and tradition with the awesome TEAM of teachers and coaches that is being assembled. My incredible wife Julie and I are blessed to have 8 amazing children, Ben-24, Jaxon-23, Kobey-22, Alies-11, Emery-9, Karina-8, Jazmine-7, and Jack-6.
