David Russell was named Head coach of the CSM golf team in October 2017.
Coach Russell has over 12 years of golf coaching experience at the high school level. He has been the head coach of the very successful La Plata High School golf team for the past 12 seasons. The experience and knowledge of the local players will help the program recruit and retain an influx of talent for years to come.
“I am thrilled to join the CSM golf team, it is a return of sorts to the athletic program. I played 2 seasons of baseball in 1994 and 1995 under the tutelage of head baseball coach John Ford. The Hawks athletic program has always been a part of my athletic success and I look forward to the new challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for me in this new position,” said Coach Russell. “I look forward to assisting Coach Early in the ongoing process of building a competitive and successful team that he has established now in his second season. I am also excited to work with the student-athletes and help them achieve big things on the golf course and in the classroom.”
A native of Compton, Maryland, Coach Russell earned his bachelor’s degree in Sports Science/Health/Physical Education and is a future candidate for a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction at McDaniel College with a specialization in Administration. Coach Russell has been married to his wife Angel for 14 years and has an 8-year-old daughter named Loren.
