Peterson Selected to Future Coaches Academy

Jordan Peterson, 2005 graduate of Lexington High and a Masters candidate at Texas A&M is one of thirty NCAA football student-athletes who have been selected for the 2010 NCAA Future Coaches Academy.

The academy was held January 10-12 in Orlando in conjunction with the annual American Football Coaches Association convention.

The Future Coaches Academy, the first of four programs in the NCAA’s Coaching Academy series, targets individuals who have recently completed their collegiate eligibility and have a desire to enter the college football coaching profession.

Participants, who were chosen by a committee of athletics administrators, AFCA members and former college coaches, will gain insight into academic issues, building successful football programs, career opportunities, communication techniques, diversity and inclusion, lifestyle balance, management and fiscal responsibilities, NCAA compliance considerations, and the preparation of student-athletes for overall academic and athletics achievement.
