Director of Athletics -- Welcome to Lees-McRae College Athletics
Jul 07, 2009
Dear Fan, Student-Athlete, Parent, Recruit or Donor:
Welcome to our website as well as our athletic department. I am
the Director of Athletics at Lees-McRae College, and I have seen
the college from a variety of positions. In July of 1998, I came to
Banner Elk, NC as the Sports Information Director as well as the
head cross-country coach, and as the years passed my roles have
expanded to my current title.
It is a privilege to represent so many different people,
coaches, student-athletes, alumni and anyone who has ever been
associated with this special place in the mountains. I am looking
forward to helping further the development of the athletic
department and those who enter its halls.
We will have over 300 student-athletes wear the green and gold
uniforms this year, participating in 17 sports. We proudly watch as
they strive for excellence both in and out of the classroom.
As a department, we are a close knit group of caring,
understanding young men and women committed to making the
collegiate student-athlete experience a great one. This is the
greatest time in a young person's life as they get a chance to
expand their horizons while prepping for the real world.
I can assure you the coaching staff, athletic training staff and
administrative staff here in the athletic department will do
everything they can to develop your talents, guide you through
life, and help give you the tools necessary to be a success.
Banner Elk and Lees-McRae College have been good to me over the
years, and I hope you will find our safe, calm and natural
environment as appealing.
This is a special and unique place.
As our teams compete in Conference Carolinas, we hope you will
follow their progress. Whether a prospective student-athlete, alum,
a fan, or a family member, we appreciate you taking the time to
check out our site. We hope you like what you see. Be it the blog,
Facebook, twitter, our photo galleries, live video, etc., we have
something for everyone to enjoy.
