Juneau-Douglas High School

For many Southeast Alaska basketball coaches, fans and players, Coach George Houston is a true legend. His name is synonymous with outstanding performance, both on and off the court. In a career spanning 34 years, Coach Houston’s teams won 10 Conference Titles, two State Championships, and a combined 278-85 Won-Loss record. To no one’s surprise, Coach Houston was named Alaska Coach of the Years three times. Since retiring as a teacher and coach from Juneau-Douglas High School, George continues to coach basketball and work with youth in many capacities at every level. From coaching a middle school team to officiating club games, Coach Houston is preparing the next generation of Alaska basketball players. He also works numerous summer camps, and coached Team Alaska at the Arctic Winter Games in Yellowknife.
