Summit Christian Academy has hired Dane Cockrell as the new head coach of the boys’ varsity soccer team.
Cockrell, who recently joined the SCA school community, graduated from Southwest Baptist University with a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies. Cockrell has been youth pastor at Country Meadows Baptist Church and a very popular guest speaker at SCA chapel services.
While in college, Cockrell played soccer for a club team and he also played in high school. In addition to his coaching duties, Cockrell will teach Bible courses in the secondary school.
“I’m excited about the leadership and soccer knowledge that Coach Cockrell will bring to the program,” said Jake Kates, SCA athletic director. “Cockrell is a fierce competitor and a great mentor for young athletes.”
