Coach Chelsea talks Servant Leadership with Cortney Braswell, Inside Linebacker Coach for The United States Military Academy West Point

The Servant Leader Coaches Bible Study

Coach Braswell has just joined the Army West Point staff. As the outside linebackers assistant coach at Appalachian State in 2020, Braswell helped lead a defensive unit that ranked 18th nationally in total defense as the Mountaineers went 9-3 and won the Myrtle Beach Bowl with a 56-28 victory over North Texas. The App State defense ranked in the top three in multiple Sun Belt defensive categories, including second in pass defense and second in total defense. Braswell was also a key national recruiter for the Mountaineers. Coach Braswell was the first-ever 1st-year head coach to have a winning season while coaching at Ridgeland High School. Not only this but he was also selected as the Head Coach for the Tennessee vs. Georgia All-Star Game. With all of his accomplishments and hard work, he was also named AFCA 35 Under 35. "It is the honor of my life to serve our young men in the Brotherhood who've dedicated their lives to the service of others." Such a statement from an amazing servant leader.

Cortney Braswell, Outside Linebackers - Appalachian State

Inside the Headset with the AFCA

This week on Inside the Headset, we are featuring Appalachian State University Outside Linebackers Coach, Cortney Braswell. Coach Braswell shares his personal coaching journey, explains the significance of demonstrating grit, and highlights the importance of creating a family-focused culture. Cortney Braswell was hired as an assistant coach on the defensive side of the ball by head coach Shawn Clark in January 2020. Braswell, a former high school head coach in Georgia and Tennessee, joined the Mountaineer staff after serving as a defensive quality control coach at Louisville for the 2019 season. During his one season at Louisville, Braswell worked for former Appalachian State head coach Scott Satterfield and helped the Cardinals to one of the biggest turnarounds in college football. In 2018, as the head coach at Ridgeland High School in his hometown of Rossville, Georgia, Braswell led the Panthers to an 8-4 overall record, a Region 6-AAAA runner-up finish and a 34-14 state playoff victory before a second-round loss at Cartersville, the eventual state runner-up. Prior to taking over at Ridgeland, Braswell was the head coach at Chattanooga Central High School (TN) in 2016 and 2017, and led the Purple Pounders to the TSSAA state playoffs twice. He also served on the Tennessee Football Coaches Association Board of Directors to represent the interests of football coaches statewide and serve as a contributing voice with the TSSAA legislation. Braswell began his coaching career in 2009 as he coached defensive backs at Ringgold. He went on to be the defensive coordinator at Soddy-Daisy, East Ridge, North Murray, Chattanooga Central and Bradley Central. He was the 2014 District Assistant Coach of the Year during his first stint with the Purple Pounders. A two-time all-state running back,  Braswell graduated from his high school as its single-game and career rushing and scoring leader and later played college football at Liberty University.
