Middle School Football

As a middle school program, we pride ourselves in using the same terminology and concepts as the Varsity football program.

Our aim is to "Be Set Apart" and to show Christ in everything we do, which includes our actions and our behavior on and off the field. As coaches, we constantly work to stay current with the best practices in player and team safety.

Facilities

Reese Smith Athletic Complex

The Reese Smith Athletic Complex, consisting of the McCadams Athletic Center, football stadium and field, Tallent Track, baseball field and a football practice field, is named in appreciation of Reese L. Smith, a Lipscomb friend and contributor. Smith, owner of the Nashville Sounds minor league baseball team, was inducted into the Fastpitch Softball Hall of Fame, Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) Blue Raider Hall of Fame and posthumously the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame.

Football Field

The football field is one of several fields located at the Reese Smith Athletic Complex. The home stands were constructed in 1982, and the visitor stands were added in the 1990s. In 2018, a new weight room was added and the existing home stands, locker room, coaches offices and concession stand underwent a $1 million renovation. New endzone bleachers were added in 2019 with an additional seating capacity of 980. 

Bleacher capacity: 2900

McCadams Athletic Center (The MAC)

When completed in 2016, the $5 million McCadams Athletic Center was only one of three climate-controlled indoor turf practice field training facilities in Middle Tennessee. The 25,000-square-foot state-of-the-art training facility was named after the late Glenn McCadams, longtime Lipscomb Academy football coach and Athletic Director. The all-sports facility for both male and female student-athletes offers a place to develop agility, strength and speed skills. Included in the facility are a girls’ locker, public restrooms, a team meeting room and conference room with the latest in technology and audiovisual capabilities and an outdoor terrace/special event space overlooking the football field. The indoor turf practice field is named the C. O. Christian Jr. Family Training Field in honor of the late Oakley Christian, owner of C.O. Christian & Sons and former Mustang football assistant.

Football Performance Center

The addition of new equipment, designed by Sorinex, in the football performance center adds state-of-the-art equipment with cutting edge pieces outfitting sixteen stations that allow us to do more than any other high school in the country. We also have key training pieces like a Swiss Swing--equipment used for reintroducing an injured player back to the field, Power Plate and two Keiser functional trainers that allow us to train rotary movement and power.

Human Performance Weight Room

With the renovation of the human performance weight room located at the Upper School, the enhanced performance center is accessible now for the entire student body. The renovations have expedited our ability to install methodologies based around teaching movement, core strength and proper lifting techniques. Sixteen racks, numerous dumbbell and kettlebell racks and increased space give the athletics program the necessary tools to teach effectively.
