I am honored to be the Athletic Director at Blue Ridge Christian School (BRCS). My goal is to see the elementary, middle and high school athletic programs grow over the next few years. The vision of the BRCS Athletic Program will be to build student-athletes spiritually, academically and physically.
I am privileged to share with you a little more information about myself. I have been involved in various sports for nearly 15 years. I have been blessed to graduate from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a BS in Business Administration and James Madison University with a MS in Kinesiology – Sport, Recreation and Leadership. I am grateful to have played 5 years of collegiate football and understand what it takes to perform as a student-athlete on a high level. Outside of my Athletic Director responsibilities, I am the 9th-12th grade Physical Education Teacher and I coach the Cross Country and Track and Field teams.
The BRCS student-athlete will live by these three values. The first value is faith. Every student-athlete should believe that the Lord empowers them to compete for His glory. They should understand that the Lord knows what’s best no matter the circumstances (Proverbs 3:5-6). The second value is hard work. The Lord did not bless everyone with the same abilities. We cannot control our abilities, but what we can control is how much effort we give toward a task (Proverbs 13:4). The third value is sportsmanship. Our goal in any level of competition is to try our best to be champions, but it does not always work out that way. BRCS student-athletes will show class in any result of competition and be examples of Christ in their speech and conduct at all times (Philippians 2:3).
The mission of the Blue Ridge Christian Athletic program will be to provide an excellent sports program that will allow and encourage our student athletes to develop their God-given abilities. We want our student athletes to honor and glorify God in all that they do (1 Corinthians 10:31), understanding that athletics is something that God allows us to do, not something that defines us. God alone may have first place in our lives (Matthew 6:33).
