About Football - V


The Lipscomb Academy football program and Head Coach Trent Dilfer seek every opportunity to Be Set Apart. 

We are a Human Development program masked as a Football team. We live by Jesus’ Golden Rule and through that we are assured that we can make a lasting impact with our daily actions. Through Justice and Equality for all, we are proactively developing the Character of each Tribe member so that one day they can become Thermostat leaders prepared to make a positive impact for the community of Middle Tennessee and eventually the World. Our Tribe demonstrates that some of the “fun” is discovered in the struggle, that there is a freedom found in working through their "temporary setbacks", and peace for a Mustang is found by concentrating their mindsets only on what they can control- Effort, Energy, Attitude and Focus. We ask our Tribe to live uncommon lives that are rooted in Joy, Positivity, and Encouragement. A life that truly represents our motto “Be Set Apart”.


Since its establishment 127 years ago, Lipscomb Academy has provided a rigorous but joyful learning environment for Nashville students in the intermediate and primary grades. From its very beginnings, Lipscomb Academy benefitted from the college-level professors, equipment and resources available right on its campus. The entire school was founded “to teach the Christian religion as presented in the Bible” and “to prepare Christians for usefulness, in whatever sphere they are called upon to labor.”

Today, that mission means Lipscomb Academy provides all the opportunity of a university, with the feel of a family. Our mission is greater than shaping only the minds of your children; we guide children to discover their gifts and passions to develop as a whole person and to become an adult who can positively influence the Nashville and greater global community.  Learn More About Lipscomb Academy!
