Brewton-Parker hires a new Cross Country coach

Brewton-Parker College is excited to announce Micah Shaw as its new Cross Country and Track and Field Coach. Coach Shaw will be building upon the success of last season which witnessed a Southern States Athletic Conference Champion, a podium finish, and a National Qualifier.  No doubt, the program will be in great hands with Coach Shaw, who helped nurture 42 NAIA Qualifiers, 4 NAIA All-Americans, 4 NCCAA National Champions, and many more impressive numbers from his time at Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU). Shaw, who ran at IWU, was a NCCAA All-American in the 60m Hurdles and MCC All-Conference in the 110m Hurdles. He has since built an impressive coaching career, serving as Assistant Track and Field Coach for IWU while also working as an Admissions Counselor for the University.

When asked what brought him to Brewton-Parker College, Coach Shaw stated, “After talking with Coach Prevett and hearing his philosophies, I became excited for the future of the program. Our philosophies are similar in the fact that we both want to build towards the growth of the kingdom of God while achieving athletic and academic excellence. My family and I also enjoy the community and small town atmosphere that Brewton-Parker provides.”

Coach Shaw comes from a program that has placed staggering numbers in the Track and Field community, and now he brings with him equally amazing goals for his new home. “During my first year, I aim to find the right students for Brewton-Parker and to show them how to become prominent leaders on the campus. Our goals will be defined by more than just athletic excellence–they will be defined by our character. I believe we can achieve great success and build an athletic program of high quality and volume.” He continued, “I am very grateful that Indiana Wesleyan gave me the opportunity to compete and work for them, and I hope to carry the excellence from that program to the one we have at Brewton-Parker. I am very thankful for the opportunity presented to me by Athletic Director Daniel Prevett and President Steve Echols, and I am excited to start work on campus.”
