Andy Cavins
Head Coach - 4th Season

 

Andy Cavins begins his fourth season as the head volleyball coach at Lindsey Wilson College in 2014.

In three seasons at the helm of the Blue Raider volleyball program, Cavins has made three-consecutive national tournament appearances while producing at least 30 wins each season.

A historic 2013 season saw the Blue Raiders claim the Mid-South Conference regular season title with a perfect 18-0 mark in conference play. Lindsey Wilson set a program record for wins in a season with 36, including winning 21-straight matches to begin the season.

Lindsey Wilson fell just twice during the regular season, once against Northwestern Ohio and once against eventual national champion Texas at Brownsville.

The team set a new program record for hitting percentage (.281) and saw its first ever NAIA All-American team selection in 2013. Three Blue Raiders earned NAIA Scholar-Athlete honors and six were All Mid-South Conference selections including the Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year.

The previous two seasons Lindsey Wilson won back-to-back Mid-South Conference Tournament titles -- the only two MSC Tournament titles in the program’s history.

During his first season, Cavins led Lindsey Wilson to a 31-3 record en route to winning the program’s first Mid-South Conference regular season title. His Blue Raiders backed up the historical 2011 season with 30 wins in 2012, including winning twice in the NAIA National Tournament.

Cavins owns a career record of 116-60, including 97-23 at Lindsey Wilson. He is 40-5 all-time against Mid-South competition.

Prior to Lindsey Wilson, Cavins spent two seasons as head coach at NCAA Div. III LeTourneau (Texas). He is a former assistant coach at the University of Georgia.

At LeTourneau, Cavins took over for a program that had just completed a 2-28 season with no conference wins in 2008. During Cavins’ tenure, the team compiled the most wins in the program’s history over a two-year span.

Cavins’ team amassed a 3.23 cumulative grade point average -- the highest of any sport on the LeTourneau campus. His team also concluded the season with five all-conference players, including the American Southwest Conference sportsmanship award winner.

As an assistant at Georgia, Cavins was part of a staff that inherited a Bulldog team that had finished 6-25 in the season prior to their arrival. Cavins helped Georgia to a 17-13 record in his first season with the Bulldogs and had a First Team All-Southeastern Conference performer and a First Team All-SEC Freshman team selection.

Cavins’ main responsibilities at Georgia included on-court development, recruiting coordinator and camp director. As a staff, Georgia was able to sign a Top-50 recruiting class that included the nation's second-ranked setter.

Cavins -- a former NCAA Division I baseball student-athlete at Baylor (Texas) -- also used his time on campus to serve as a student assistant for the Baylor volleyball team. Cavins participated as a practice player, on-court trainer and facility manager.

In addition to his collegiate coaching, Cavins coached at the Dallas Premier and Dallas Summit Volleyball Clubs.

Including his work at the Dallas club, Cavins also has coached in the Georgia Juniors Volleyball Club -- where he was co-director and 18’s Open coach. He also worked with the Dallas Juniors Volleyball Club and the Addison Boy’s Volleyball Club.

Cavins also enjoys experience as a volleyball camp director at every level. He has led six different high-school camps, the Fort Worth YMCA camp, and camps at Southern Methodist University, Baylor, Georgia and LeTourneau.

Cavins graduated from Baylor in 2004 and later completed his master’s degree at Georgia in 2009. He and his wife, Jessica, have one son, Kellar.
