Edwards, a Lynchburg graduate himself, returned to his alma mater and now starts his third year of coaching for the Hornets. He is a versatile teacher who is able to coach a number of different events. Edwards leads the coaching efforts in the sprints, long jumper, and triple jump.
With his knowledge, this past season Edwards helped groom 20 All-Conference performers, including seven individual champions, and three athletes who ranked in the top 50 nationally. His relay team set a new school record in the women's 4x200m and his top short sprinter not only set a new school record in women's 100m dash, but also earned the conference's Freshman of the Year honor.
During the 2010-2011 season, much was the same for Edwards and his coaching success. The horizontal jumpers earned nine All-Conference performances including a national qualifier who just missed out on All-American honors in the long jump by a mere 4cm.
Before coaching at LC, Edwards served as a volunteer coach at Fauquier High School (VA) working with the sprints, jumps, and hurdles. As a 2009 graduate, Edwards received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Religious Studies and Psychology. On top of that, he competed on LC's championship teams in the sprints, jumps, and hurdles. He was an All-American in the triple jump during the 2009 indoor season, a 10-time Conference Champion, and was named Conference Athlete of the Meet in 2008 and 2009.
