Part of an impressive group that came out of Sedalia, including Mike Howard (Rolla Bulldogs) and Eddie Horn (Jeff City Jays), Mike was recently featured in the Albany Herald. Albany is home of the Darton University Cavaliers where Mike is in his 3rd year as Athletic Director after five years at
Barton County CC Neosho CC in Kansas. Albany is approximately 100 miles north of Tallahassee, in Southwest Georgia.
ALBANY — It’s been three years since Mike Kiefer came to Albany to take over as the athletic director at Darton College. In that short period of time, he’s hired coaches, added new sports and furthered the progress of an already-successful sports program.
His professional accomplishments are obvious … but does anyone outside the school really know Kiefer, his thought process or what he has planned for the school’s future? Well, to do that, first you need to get to know the man behind Cavalier athletics.
Kiefer, a Missouri native, grew up your average Midwestern kid, playing soccer, baseball and basketball. He went to college at State Fair Community College in Sedalia, Mo., before transferring to the University of Missouri at Rolla to finish up his education.
