David Archer

David Archer served as the longest-tenured Ivy League Football Coach in the history of Cornell University despite never having a winning season. Because of his relationship building and strong team culture, his teams met or outperformed expectations during 90%of his seasons. They beat the League Champions two of the last four years, and pulled off what many call the greatest upset in Ivy League history! Dubbed “The People’s Coach” by the Cornell Daily Sun, Archer is a lifelong overachiever (when he was hired at age 30, he was the youngest coach in Division 1 football) and has compiled the best lessons that he taught and learned from his team. His high energy and fast-paced, passionate presentation will serve as a great kickoff to this year's conference!
