Dave Hiltman (Girls Basketball)
I coached Varsity Girls Basketball at Jim Elliot Christian School for 20 years and have been coaching at FRCS since 2016. I coach because I love the sport, but over the years I have realized I coach more because I love the interaction with our young people. I enjoy seeing them learn and grow in confidence and skill. We have a tremendous opportunity to impact others positively through our faith and how we demonstrate that during competition. It is my highest priority to help our kids learn to compete with Christian character and to learn to serve and honor our opponents while competing with great intensity and passion. I also hope that they leave with a passion to remain active and fit throughout their life.
Paul Lowe (Football)
Coach Lowe has been leading the Football program at Front Range Christian since 2016. He has been a coach since 2003 in various sports that include Track & Field, Football, Basketball and Swimming. In addition to Football, he is currently the Head Coach of the Denver Christian Track & Field program. Outside of coaching, he is a Youth Pastor at Hillcrest Christian Church. He is an avid mountain biker, hiker and would rather sleep in a tent than inside. He has been married to Katina since 2005.
Jon Moore (Volleyball)
I am a Colorado native who is married with four kids. My biggest passions growing up were playing sports, skiing, waterskiing, and doing anything adrenaline inducing. I began playing volleyball as a young adult, and I had the fortune of having many great players mentor me and teach me the game. I played for over 20 years and competed in innumerable tournaments and leagues at double A men’s level and in co-ed.
This is my fourth year coaching Varsity Girls’ Volleyball (second with FRCS) and prior to that, I coached boys’ Flag Football for six years. I have helped with Boys’ Varsity Basketball as well, I and found that I have a passion for coaching. I enjoy sharing what I have learned about the game, the strategizing aspect of coaching, and helping these young ladies develop their God-given talents to the fullest. I also believe a coach should continually strive to learn and improve, therefore, I work to constantly challenge and improve myself as a coach. Most importantly, I have realized that sports are a vehicle for learning important life lessons about identity in Christ, how to apply scriptural principles to daily challenges, discipline, organization, focus, teamwork, selflessness, work ethic, and commitment, to name a few. I am honored to have this opportunity to coach at Front Range Christian.
Justin Olson (Baseball)
I have been Head Varsity Baseball Coach at Front Range Christian School since 2014. Prior to coaching I was fortunate enough to play college baseball for the University of Illinois and then pro baseball for the Minnesota Twins. Through that experience I have played for coaches I did not care for and coaches that I loved. I try daily to bring those positive coaching styles to our team. For those who know me, they understand that baseball is truly a passion of mine. Coaching allows me to share that passion with the young men at FRCS. After a long day at work I look forward to spending time and having fellowship with the team on the field. I strive to coach these young men in a manner that respects the game and the opponent and brings glory to God.
Eric Osberg (Girls Soccer)
I have been married for 13 years and have 4 wonderful kids who attend Front Range Christian School. Samson is in 4th grade, Emery is in 2nd grade, Jonas is in Kindergarten, and Cecelia is 3 months old. I have been the girl’s varsity soccer coach for the last 6 years. I have over 15 years of coaching experience at multiple levels of soccer. I love working with the team and molding them into a family that wants to compete together everyday on the field. I see coaching as an extension of the classroom here at Front Range Christian, where we try to give everything we have. One of the greatest things that I get to do is teach the girls how to compete has hard as they can for one purpose and that is to serve our Lord Jesus Christ. This is a great calling and one that I do not take lightly. GO FALCONS!
Kyle Stidom (Boys Basketball)
I am originally from Morehead, Kentucky but grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. I spent most of my life in Indiana, and it’s there that I fell in love with the game of basketball. I played four years of high school basketball at Greenwood Christian Academy in Greenwood, Indiana. It was there my life changed because of the investment made into me by my teachers and coaches. It was then that I knew I wanted to return the favor to the next generation through the game of basketball. I finished my high school career with over 2,000 career points and 1,000 career rebounds, which allowed me to be one of only four in the history of Indiana high school basketball to accomplish that feat.
Following high school, I attended and played basketball at Davenport University in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for one year before transferring to Taylor University in Upland, Indiana, where I was an All-American and All-Conference player. I graduated with a degree in Sports Management.
After college, I worked for Indiana’s NBA team, the Indiana Pacers for one season doing sales & marketing before beginning my coaching career. I have coached two years of college basketball, one year at the University of Indianapolis, and I just finished coaching my first season at my alma mater, Taylor University.
Outside of coaching and basketball, I love to read, play golf, work out, and spend time with friends and family.
My passion is using the game of basketball to pour into and impact people, while also striving for excellence in all we do. I feel blessed to be the head coach at FRCS, and I am excited to be a part of the Front Range Christian community.
