Kolby, the youngest of the Dickson and Luann Jensen kids started coaching for All Iowa Attack in 2018. He grew up with Attack, watching brothers and sisters play, playing with the program himself, and also working hosted tournaments. Kolby brings a young youthful energy to the court. With years of getting coached by Attack coaches, Kolby understands the importance and meaning of the "Attack Way."
In high school Kolby played basketball, football, and golf at Ballard High School in Huxley. He was recognized for many all-conference, all-academic awards for basketball. Although Kolby loves basketball, his favorite sport is football. He was awarded All-district honors two times in his career and was fortunate enough to play in The River Battle Bowl. An all-star game that represents the best players from Iowa vs the best from Nebraska. Kolby was offered and accepted a scholarship to play Division 1 football at Drake University. After one year he decided to transfer to Iowa State where he will graduate with a Business Management degree.
Attack has brought many lessons and memories into every kid that puts on the Attack uniform. Some of Kolby's best memories are playing against the best kids in the country. Watching the likes of Jayson Tatum, Bam Adebayo, Gary Trent Jr, and other next level stars in the NBA makes for great stories and awesome memories. Being able to say, "Oh I've played against him," or even, "I remember beating him," is a great accomplishment. Playing against this level of competition brings along playing in front of colleges like Michigan State, North Carolina, Duke, Iowa State, Iowa, Drake, UNI and others which is an unbelievable experience. All these things are awesome but the greatest memory is the laughs and friendships built through basketball. Playing for Attack gives you opportunities that others won't experience, getting pushed to excellence, learning life lessons, but most importantly is when you hang up the shoes you will have lifelong friends still in your life.
