At Lincoln Christian University our success is measured in two ways: 1. how we perform on the field and 2. how we reflect Christ through our spiritual development. We understand that when we step inside the chalk lines on game day, we will give everything we have so that we may honor Christ through our ability to play this game.

Our expectation is that every player will play to the top of his ability every day. As a team, we train throughout the school year so that on opening day we will have what it takes to succeed.

Do you want to play for a team that glorifies Christ while playing the game you love? Do you want to play for a coaching staff that prepares you to be a leader on and off the field? Do you want to be a part of a team in which you will build relationships that will last a lifetime? If so, I encourage you to fill out an Athletic Recruit-Me form today. I look forward to walking through this process with you!
