Ron Kreisel

Athletic Director

The Lord has blessed me by calling me to the role of Athletic Director at Clinton Christian Academy. I will work hard to continue the legacy of sportsmanship and love of Christ left by Roger Bancroft.

I have been involved in athletics my whole life as either a player, parent or coach. I was active as a student at Green Ridge High School as a player and elementary basketball and Little League baseball coach. I attended SFCC, where I was student manager for the basketball team that went to the JUCO National Tournament and was ranked as high as 7th in the nation in 1976. I finished my formal education at UCM, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Education in 1978. My early years I coached basketball, baseball and cross country at Calhoun, Mansfield and Stoutland. I left the education scene in 1985 and put in a career with Coca-Cola. I returned to my hometown school of Calhoun where I taught and coached for 16 more years.

My wife Vickie and I have three children, six grandchildren, and a great-grandson. I enjoy sports and the ability to serve and worship the Lord Jesus Christ with gladness at the Clinton First Baptist Church where I serve as a deacon. I am excited over this new opportunity to serve Him at CCA. You can text or call me anytime at my cell (660-525-2314), or email me at
