Jake Turner

Head Coach

I grew up in Starr, SC and am still a member of First Baptist Church of Iva (in Iva, SC). When I am in town, I usually attend Riverside Community Church in Columbia, SC. I graduated from Erskine College in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology. I am currently the Head Cross Country Coach, as well as the head Head Track and Field Coach at NCA (program started in the Spring of 2021). 2021 is my fourth year coaching Cross Country at NCA (2018-present), and it is my fifth year working at NCA overall. During the 2017-2018 school year I served as the school’s Athletic Trainer. I am currently pursuing my Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of South Carolina. I enjoy running, hiking, watching baseball, and leading Bible devotion discussions with the teams I coach.
