Coaching basketball is an interest for 2019 Marysville High graduate Levi Nordhus, who is spending the summer working with sophomore Peyton Smith.

The two are similar in height and build. Smith wants to be influential as a 6-foot-3-and-growing post player and Nordhus is working to help him do so. Working with Smith also helps Nordhus develop a coaching style. He gives Smith plenty to concentrate on during the week with skills.
