  • Coach David Baker was a Life Changer for Me

    With no intercollegiate program, no scholarships, and no budget, Coach Baker set out with a vision that SNU could become one of America’s finest small college athletic programs. At age 27, with a background in the country’s finest collegiate football program (OU) and the NFL (49ers), Baker believed that the greatest impact and athletic experience could happen where “athletics in a Christian atmosphere” thrived.

    During Baker’s tenure (1964-1974) a long list of significant accomplishments occurred: the first two men’s basketball seasons garnered winning marks; Benchwarmer Club formed in 1968; first funded scholarships awarded in 1969; Redskin Revolution changed the course of sportsmanship in society; women’s basketball, volleyball, and men’s and women’s tennis were added; big man playing point innovation added in 1971 and copied nationwide; Spokesman Bicycle Tour group formed; and the goal to achieve a national title in 10 years was set and reached with men’s basketball title in 1981 under Coach Loren Gresham; all under the foundation of Mark 9:23…”all things are possible to him who believes.”

    I speak for many when I say, Coach David Baker was a life-changer for me. As my coach, professor, mentor, colleague, and friend, he inspired me to be all that I could be, to live life in the “right way with the right priorities” and “love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.” I will forever be indebted. -Dr. Larry Mills (‘66)
