The King’s Academy recently announced the hiring of Jeremy Evans to be its new director of athletic performance training.
Evans joins the Lions staff after three years as a performance specialist at the Exos Athlete Performance Institute on the campus of the Andrews Institute.
First-round NFL draft picks, Major League Baseball players and special operations soldiers are some of the regular clients of Exos.
“Coach Evans’ previous experiences position him to be able to incorporate the type of programming here at the King’s Academy that will maximize the athletic performance of our student-athletes. In the hyper-competitive atmosphere of South Florida, someone like coach Evans gives us that edge we need,” Associate Athletic Director Chris Hobbs.
The school’s continued pursuit of “Excellence In Athletics” took a step forward, as Evans brings elite levels of education and experience to this new position. Evans holds certifications from the Collegiate Strength & Conditioning Coaches Association, USA Weightlifting and Exos Human Performance.
In his time at Exos, Evans has worked with 10 first-round NFL draft picks, rehabilitated special operations soldiers, and directed the programs for middle school and high school athletes.
“We are so excited to have a person like Jeremy and his elite background in athletic performance join our athletic department,” Athletic Director Adam Winters said. “His passion to have an impact on high school student-athletes was a big reason he appealed to us. Jeremy has worked with a wide range of athletes from middle school students to the professional level. We believe he will know exactly how to get the most out of our student-athletes.”
