Coach Fleming holds 15 years of coaching experience as a coach and trainer to athletes who have played at collegiate, high school and youth levels, most recently serving as head coach and Commissioner with the Upland Hurricanes Jr All American Youth Football Organization and Youth Director of Explosive Athletic Training Youth 7v7 Teams. Fleming’s first order of business was to establish the foundation for the future of the program. Fleming’s definition of what it means to play for Western Christian has excited many and his “LANCER MAN” model has provided the example of the type of young men he intends to develop within the football program. Leadership, Accountability, Nobility, Charitable, Earnest, and Relentless are the “LANCER MAN” qualities that Coach Fleming is instilling in the players and has developed a strong coaching staff to assist him in implementing these great characteristics.
    The future looks bright for Western Christian as we move forward with Coach Fleming. Coach Fleming and his wife Robyn has three children, Nash, Jeremih and Ari.
    Romans 12;2
