David Lord has returned to the University of Redlands football coaching staff and will direct the defensive line. He previously coached with the Bulldogs from 2009 to 2011, working with the offensive line and serving as recruiting coordinator.
Lord most recently served as offensive line coach at Millsaps College, an NCAA Division III school in Jackson, Mississippi. During the 2013 season, the Millsaps offensive line allowed only seven sacks to rank 14th in the nation and help the offense to surpass 2,000 rushing yards. In the previous season, the Millsaps offensive line allowed only six sacks to sit seventh in the nation and enable the offense to run for more than 1,400 yards.
From 2005 to 2007, Lord was an assistant football coach at Jurupa Valley High School. There he was part of a rushing attack that was ranked top-50 in the nation and a top five in California.
Lord, a graduate of Eisenhower, started out his collegiate football career as a redshirt freshman at San Jose State in 2004 and then transferred to play for Coach Bill Brown at Riverside Community College in 2005. He then transferred back into NCAA Division I in 2007, completing his Bachelor of Science in sociology at Northern Arizona.
Lord replaces Juan Navarro, who recently accepted the opportunity to become the defensive line assistant coach at Southern University in Baton Rouge, La.
Jordan Faison has earned his second California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Player of the Week after a stellar performance on Saturday. In the team’s lone contest this weekend, Cal Poly Pomona men’s basketball topped the Humboldt State Jacks 86-76. The conference office announced its decision for the week of Jan. 18-24 on Tuesday.
Faison, a senior from Lake Forest, was nearly perfect from the field in the matchup as he sank 8-of-9 shots. His successful field goals added to his six good free throws landed him with 22 points, a figure that led both teams.
The forward was not done there however, as he nearly reached a double-double with nine rebounds. Adding to his points and boards, the 6-foot-7 Bronco dished out seven assists in the contest and also stifled the Jacks’ offense as he added a pair of blocks.
The Broncos will return to action on Thursday as they host the Cal State San Bernardino Coyotes for Pack the Stands night at Kellogg Arena.
Junior swimmer Ellie Jaques of the University of Redlands has been named Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Female Athlete of the Week for her showing against Pomona-Pitzer on Saturday.

She was second in the 100 free with a season best 55.12.
Finally, she capped off a solid day by winning the 200 breast with another season-best time to head up a podium sweep for the Bulldogs. She out-swam all competition with her time of 2:30.61.
Chapman University’s Cam Haslam of the basketball team received the nod for SCIAC Male Athlete of the Week.
