Sports Performance

Cross Country 2023
The Liberty Sports Performance philosophy is to safely teach young men and women to follow Jesus through the development of character, discipline and superior athletic performance.
David has served as the Director of Sports Performance at Liberty Christian since 2017. He lives in Denton with his wife, Ally, and three sons Dallas, Landry, and Walker. He graduated from Texas Tech in 2010 with his Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise & Sports Sciences, then again in 2012 with his Master’s in the same field. David was a four-year letterman in football under Mike Leach and Tommy Tuberville during that time. 
After his playing career finished, he began his coaching career at Texas Tech where he served as a strength and conditioning assistant coach for Tommy Tuberville. He spent the next five years working as a collegiate strength coach with stops at Cincinnati and the University of Texas before coming to Liberty in 2017. During that time, he would work with not only college football athletes, but soccer, basketball, volleyball, track and field, swimming, and golf athletes as well.
Favorite verse, Philippians 3:12-14: "Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."

Post-Workout Shakes

We have partnered with Gatorade to give our athletes Ready To Drink shakes post workout that they can take with them on the go. These will be able to be purchased starting in August.

In order to best serve the needs of all of our athletes, we will give two options at the end of each training session:

  • Option 1 will be a high carb Gatorade protein shake with 40g of carbs and 20g of protein. This option will help our athletes who need to put on some bodyweight.
  • Option 2 will be a low carb Muscle Milk with 25g of protein and 8g of carbs. This option will help our athletes who need to maintain or lose bodyweight.

The cost is $200 for the entire semester (athletes can come get one shake per day). Due to supply issues, we will be unable to continue providing protein bars in addition to the shakes.
