12,500 Sq. Ft Sports Performance Center Opens at Providence

Providence's new sports performance facility known as the WIN Center has been a huge hit with students and staff. Check out the article in the Gwinnett Daily Post and scroll through the pictures to get a look at the 12,500-square foot facility.

To quote Athletic Director Brad Williams, "Our teams are just loving it. The amount of kids putting in work now just because they love going there is great to see. We really wanted the kids to focus on how they can be better versions of themselves, getting bigger, stronger, and faster."

The WIN Center is the result of the generosity and prayers of numerous folks in our school community. Thanks to everyone who helped make it a reality! #GoStorm

His impressive stats included a batting average of .376, three home runs, 25 RBIs, 33 runs, nine doubles, two triples, and 11 stolen bases. Lee played a significant role in the Storm's journey to the 2023 Class AA Sweet Sixteen.

Providence Christian Academy is thrilled to announce the hiring of the new head coach of the Storm football program, Coach John Russ.

Coach Russ comes to Providence most recently from Tattnall Square Academy in Macon, Georgia, where he served as associate head coach. Prior to that, he coached at Mercer University. He also has experience coaching at Georgia State University as a graduate assistant. Coach Russ is a Gwinnett native. He played high school football at Mill Creek and played collegiately at Mercer, where he served as a four-year captain.

"I am blessed and honored to become the next head coach at Providence,” said Coach Russ. “I would like to thank Joey Thacker, Sean West, Brad Williams, and IV Bray for believing in my vision for Providence. I will create a culture that will develop individuals spiritually, academically, athletically, and socially. I expect our football program to be built on trust and competitiveness. I can’t wait to get started and begin to build relationships with the staff and students at Providence."

Asked about Coach Russ coming to Providence, Drew Cronic, the head football coach at Mercer University, responded,“I want to congratulate Providence Christian on their decision to make John Russ their next football coach. I have great admiration for John as a man, leader, and coach. He did a tremendous job for Mercer University, both as a player and a coach, and I am proud for him to have this great opportunity. He is a winner in every way. I know his influence will be quickly felt by his staff, players, and the entire community."

"Providence got a good one in John Russ," Jeff Saturday, former Indianapolis Colts head coach and 14-year NFL veteran, said. "He does a tremendous job developing both kids and coaches on and off the football field. He connects to people, and they respond to him in a positive way. His level-headed approach allows him to both encourage and give correction the right way. I could not be more thrilled for John and for Providence."
