As an assistant at Trevecca, he was responsible for recruiting and player development and managing the playing surface of all athletic fields. Coach Rayburn also played at Columbia State, where he served as a captain in 2011.

Coach Rayburn is engaged to be married this month to Caryn Lambright.

Coach Rayburn states, “I am excited to get the opportunity to invest in Ezell-Harding Christian School players and build them up not only as men but also in their faith. It is a great opportunity to not only work with the baseball team but also with the lower school  students as well.”
