McKay Athletics is excited to welcome Keista McCrae as Interim Boys Basketball Coach.
KJ attended Santa Rosa Junior College in Santa Rosa, CA, where he earned an A.A. degree and then transferred to Portland State University, in Portland, OR, on football scholarship and earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Science. KJ is currently attending Grand Canyon University where he is working toward earning his Masters of Education in Secondary Education.

Along with being the Boys Basketball Coach, KJ will also be a Behavior Specialist at McKay, as well as Defensive Coordinator for our football program. Being inside the school will give KJ the opportunity to build positive relationships with our students and help them reach their full potential through the teaching of our 3 core values of Leadership, Scholarship, and Competitiveness. “I am excited for this opportunity and this challenge to grow as a coach, but I am most excited for this opportunity to impact the young people of our community in a positive way! #GoScots #CompeteIEYD”
We are extremely excited for what the future holds for Basketball, Football, and all of our programs that coach McCrae will be involved with. Please help us in giving an amazing Royal Scots Welcome to Teacher and Coach KJ McCrae. #ScotsPride.

We’ve got some excellent news to celebrate with you. 5 out of our 6 varsity winter sports teams have earned the distinction of qualifying for “Academic All-State” by having a team GPA of 3.0 and higher. These student athletes and their coaches have worked tirelessly to be student-athletes of character, scholar, and selfless service. This gives us a running total of 9 out of our 13 varsity teams this school year have qualified for this honorable recognition. These are our student-athletes, these are our coaches, and this is our McKay!
Thank you for supporting our student-athletes, coaches, parents, and Athletic Success program!
