News and Information

David Archer Joins ECA as Director of Athletics

News Release – FEBRUARY 11, 2020

Today, Mr. David Archer, Jr. was named Director of Athletics and Head Boys High School Basketball Coach at Excel Christian Academy. David shared “I am truly blessed to be afforded an opportunity to join a school and a family as purposeful as Excel Christian Academy, and I look forward to the potential of having a positive impact on the direction of the Eagle Athletic Program!”

A native of Cartersville, GA, David has held Head Coaching and Athletic Director roles most recently at the junior college level, at Chattahoochee Technical College. As Head Coach, he has been a tremendous developer of talent and more importantly a life-long friend to his players over the years. David is a Championship coach, with nearly two decades of coaching experience. He and his wife, Amy, reside here in Cartersville, GA with their family.

“David’s passion for the game of basketball and the young men he comes into contact with are undeniable. So too is his focus on faith, family, and community. He is what we need in a Christ-centered man, developer of our students-athletes, and coach. The qualities he possesses as a coach and a human being really make him a fantastic candidate for being our head coach and director of athletics. I’m so happy to be able to bring him to Excel Christian Academy, and closer to a community he loves so much.” stated school Liaison to the Board of Directors, Tony Suber.

With the recent end to this year’s basketball season, players will get a chance to meet their new coach, hear how he plans to help lead the program, and how they will play a role in helping with the program heading into the new school year.

We are excited about David Archer joining our ECA team, and we look forward to introducing him to each of you soon!
