Mitch Bain

Mitch Bain

Assistant Coach (Varsity)

My name is Mitchell Bain, 2017-18 is my first full year in the athletic department. I started with Excel in the 2012 school year helping with the football team, and as a head middle school basketball coach. In 2014 I joined the staff at Excel with the before and after school program until the athletic department needed someone with a passion for Christian athletics to step up and lead. I have coached middle school basketball boys and girls, high school basketball boys and girls, and high school girls’ volleyball. I am currently finishing my degree in Ministry. I am the youth pastor at Freedom Fellowship in Sparks. I love working with the kids as they grow both as athletes and as Christians.

Alton Banks

Alton Banks

Assistant Coach (Junior Varsity & Varsity Boys)

I was born and raised in New Orleans, LA. I graduated from Sarah T. Reed High School. I enlisted into the U.S. Marine Corps in September of 1992, where I met my wife LTCMDR Banks R. who is in the Navy working at the NAS in Fallon. I served my country for 20 years and retired in 2012 after finding out we were expecting twin boys. I became a stay at home dad to raise my sons while my wife continued her Navy career. During this time I became the Youth Pastor at the Sanctuary of Jacksonville and Attended North Carolina College of Theology for my Associates and Bachelors in Biblical Studies. I’m currently working on my Masters and plan to follow that with a Bachelor in Logistics. My Marine Corps career has afforded me the opportunity to live and serve all over the nation. From the Young Marines Program in New Orleans to San Diego Christian Worship Center, to Abundant life Church in Chicago, to Western Branch Community Church, to the Sanctuary of Jacksonville to Excel Christian School.

David Ryan

David Ryan

Head Coach (Junior Varsity Boys)

I was born in Waterford, Michigan and grew up attending a Lutheran church. I dedicated my life to following Christ when I was twenty four years old. Now my family and I attend Summit Christian Church in Sparks.

My education includes Bachelor of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Michigan State University as well as Master of Science in Mathematics Education from Oregon State University. Working at Excel and fulfilling different responsibilities gives me an opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of students. Serving Excel families is a blessing.

I have been married for twenty three years and have three children with my lovely wife Fran. My free time is occupied with hiking, camping and traveling with my family.
