Head Coach, 1st Year

Office Phone: 575-624-8280

Email: stevens@nmmi.edu

Christian Stevens comes to Colt basketball from South Bend, Ind., a hotbed of hoops action and a well known DI university.

“When you mention Notre Dame a lot of people do know where it is,” he said. “It’s like a light bulb moment.”

Stevens played basketball and ran track at Washington High School, then moved on to Hesston College in Kansas, where he was a guard for the Larks basketball team. He then transferred to Goshen College in Indiana, where he finished his college career with the Leafs while studying exercise science.

Because of his track and field experience, Stevens feels he brings more than just basketball skills to the table.

 

“I bring a really good strength and conditioning program as far as just straight up basketball,” he said. “Knowledge of basketball talent with the experience.”

 

Stevens is married to Araceli Stevens and has a 2-year-old son, Christian Jr., and both will be with him at every game.

 

“They’ll be at all the games. If I’m not yelling, they’ll be yelling and cheering us on,” he said.  “They might even stop in and be at practices.

 

“She’s a typical basketball mom. “She want to check us out and make sure we’re doing everything we can to win. She want to be as involved as I am and let the kids know they can talk to her when they’re scared of me because I’m the mean one in this situation.”
