Seward County Athletic Director Dan Artamenko has announced that Jay Daubenberger will be joining the Saints in July as their new Assistant Athletic Director For Communications.

Daubenberger comes to Seward County after spending four years working at both the NJCAA and NCAA Division I level at Florida SouthWestern State College and Florida Gulf Coast University as an undergraduate.

He brings a well-rounded background to the Saints, which includes experience in graphic design, video creation, website management, record keeping, statistics, and creative writing among others. His graphic and video work has consistently helped FSW recruit some of the top student-athletes at the NJCAA level.

Daubenberger has had the opportunity to work with a number of successful programs, including Florida SouthWestern’s 2023 NJCAA National Championship Volleyball Team, Florida Gulf Coast’s 2022-2023 NCAA Tournament Second Round Volleyball and Women’s Basketball squads, and the FSW Men’s Basketball team who had more players at the Division I level last season (17) than any other NJCAA program.

Along with his work at FSW and FGCU, Daubenberger has also had the opportunity to work marquee events such as the Fort Myers Tip-Off Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament, the City of Palms Classic and Geico Nationals, the top two high school Basketball Tournaments in the country, as well as the ASUN Volleyball and Women’s Basketball Tournaments.

Born and raised in Cape Coral, Florida, Daubenberger does have some ties to Seward County despite having never been to the Sunflower State as he worked under former Saints Sports Information Director and Athletic Director Roy Allen at Florida SouthWestern and worked with former Lady Saints Volleyball Coach Thais Baziquetto-Allen and her National Championship squad at FSW.

“I am excited to get to Liberal and get to work” Daubenbeger said.  “I have heard nothing but great things about Seward County and the community and look forward to working with and promoting the amazing Saints and Lady Saints teams that we have on campus.”
