Sports Career-Ending Injury

Sadly in 2015, his career in sports reached a halt after he sprained his elbow and couldn’t recover to his past level. So he decided to take a U-turn toward studies. In December 2021, he became a Juris Doctor and worked as a prosecutor in Rogers County, Oklahoma.

Despite having to end his sports career, he is optimistic about it, as it made him realize what was more important in life. He said, “The experience of being so close to having something I thought I wanted, but not being able to get it, nudged me to reflect on what I really wanted in life. And, eventually, I realized I already had all the pieces I really needed right in front of me: my sweetheart, a future family, and a path to a meaningful career.”

Cole Way’s Wife And Children

Cole is a lucky man–he got married to his college sweetheart Kasee Way on January 29, 2017. Together, they are parents of two sons Walker Way and Cooper Way. Kasee gave birth to the kids during the time Cole was in law school and the pair had to face many difficulties raising their children.

He jokingly said, “We figured that law school was already hard, so Kasee and I decided we wanted to make it harder.” The lovebirds are expecting a fifth member in the family soon–Kasee posted a picture of her ultrasound.
