Lawton’s Naser Eaves: WOSC Athlete Spotlight

Western State College freshman and current basketball player Naser Eaves took an interesting path to college. Lawton is listed as his hometown, but Eaves attended high school in Germany. 

“I attended Ramstein High School located in Ramstein, Germany,” said Eaves. “I’m currently a liberal arts major but I plan to get into business management.” 

The 6-foot-4 forward is ready to get the season started, but adjusting to college life was his first challenge when he arrived on campus.

“The biggest adjustment off the court is handling your free time and not getting caught up on having too much fun,” said Eaves. 

As a student-athlete for Western State College, Eaves enjoys the class size and the attention each student can receive.

“I like that there isn’t that many people which allows you to get more 1-on-1 attention in the classroom,” said Eaves. 

As a member of the basketball team, Eaves was excited to learn his teammates shared a love for basketball.

 “I like that my teammates have an actual love for the game of basketball and have the same goal as me,” said Eaves. 

Number 23 offers this advice to anyone looking to attend school at Western State College.

 “I would tell a student that is looking at Western that this is a good place to get away from the distractions of a bigger school,” said Eaves. 

The Pioneers have a big schedule this season, which features home games against Murray State, Seminole State, NEO, Northern Oklahoma-Enid, Redlands, Eastern Oklahoma State, and Northern Oklahoma Tonkawa.
