Coaching Student Athletes to be Holistically Well - Jeremiah Gaines
Jeremiah Gaines is the co-founder of the company Elevate to Elevate LLC. He is a proud husband to Allie, father to Anais and alum of Red Oak High School where he was a three sport athlete but focused primarily on football and basketball. After four outstanding Varsity seasons, Jeremiah had the opportunity to attend SMU in Dallas, TX on a football scholarship where he would start for three seasons and graduate with a degree in Sport Management. After completing his degree, Jeremiah decided to forgo training for the NFL to focus on his marriage and pursue his master’s degree in educational leadership where he learned knowledge essential to student development and the educational pathway between high school and college. Shortly after receiving his Masters, Jeremiah had the unique privilege of being a Full-Time Professor at SMU at age 24. While teaching he received the highest course evaluations (conducted by students) of any Professor in his department. In July of 2020, Jeremiah published the book Elevating Your Potential: A guide for student athletes transitioning to college sports. He also creates and presents content to athletic programs that is practical, engaging, and thought-provoking.
