College: Lynchburg, 2017

Natalie Deacon, a native of West Chester, Pa., joined Lynchburg's coaching staff in 2017 following a four-year playing career under the leadership of head coach Dr. Todd Olsen. During her time on staff, the Hornets have claimed two Old Dominion Athletic Conference championships and made two NCAA Tournament appearances, reaching the Round of 16 in 2017 and the Elite 8 in 2018.

Throughout Deacon’s playing career, spanning from 2013-16, the Hornets posted an 84-8-6 record and won three Old Dominion Athletic Conference championships. Lynchburg reached four NCAA tournaments appearances and won the Division III national championship in 2014. A two-year captain, Deacon was a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-American, three-time All-ODAC selection, and the 2016 women’s soccer ODAC/Farm Bureau Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

Immediately following her time on the pitch, Deacon transitioned to the track in 2017, where she became a three-time NCAA All-American, twice in the indoor Mile and once in the outdoor 1500m, as well as a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-American. Deacon helped lead the Hornets to the 2018 ODAC outdoor track & field championship.

On three separate occasions, Deacon has traveled to Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda to serve alongside Coach Olsen with various nonprofit organizations. She assisted Coach Olsen in implementing the Women of Worth long-term project, which strives to empower young women using the tools of soccer and education.

Deacon holds her National Diploma from United Soccer Coaches, and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. She is a recent graduate of the NCAA Women Coaches Academy - Class 46, and has served as the head girls’ soccer coach at Brookville High School in Lynchburg since Spring 2019. 

Deacon graduated from Lynchburg in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in exercise physiology and a minor in coaching, maintaining a 3.97 cumulative GPA. She is currently enrolled in Lynchburg’s master of nonprofit leadership studies program.
