BCA Hires New Head Football Coach
Bethel Christian Academy is excited to announce the hiring of Walt Eubanks to be BCA’s Varsity Football Coach. Coach Eubanks has 14 years of experience coaching high school football and 20 years total football coaching experience. His first job coaching at the high school level was at North Lenoir High School. Coach Eubanks spent a total of six years coaching at North Lenoir High school, one year as the Varsity Linebacker’s coach and the last five years as the Varsity Defensive Coordinator.
Starting in 2015, Coach Eubanks became the Defensive Coordinator for the return of football at Bethel Christian Academy. During 2015, he was the Defensive Coordinator of the JV football team. With the addition of varsity football in the fall of 2016 at Bethel, he became the Varsity Defensive Coordinator. During his time at Bethel, the Trojans won two state championships and only suffered one losing season. He has coached five All-State players and has had several more All-Conference players selected from his defense.
BCA’s Athletic Director Ashley Stroud said, “We are excited about Coach Eubanks becoming our head coach. I believe there is no one who is more qualified to be the head of our football program than Coach Eubanks. With his level of knowledge, his passion for football, his love for this Academy and our students/players, Coach Eubanks is clearly the right man for the job. He has been Coach Crowder’s lead assistant since 2015 and is known by our students and a familiar face and voice for our football players.”
During chapel today, Coach Eubanks said, “I am excited to be your new Head Varsity Football Coach. I have some big shoes to fill with quite a bit of success, but we will move forward and continue that tradition.” BCA has already begun scheduling for the 2023-2024 season and is looking forward to the “Friday Night Lights.” “Go Trojans!”
