Matthew Lofton, who joined the athletic staff at Centenary College in July of 2015, is in his third season with the Ladies and Gents athletics department.
 
Matthew joined the athletic department after working for New Mexico Highlands from December 2013-June 2014. There, he was in charge of all aspects of the Highlands sports information office, including spearheading the redesign of nmhucowboys.com in the fall of 2014.

Lofton spent the 2012-2013 and the fall of 2013 school years as an intern with the Little Rock sports information office. Assisting with all aspects of the office, he was specifically the contact for volleyball, women’s basketball, women’s swimming and diving, women’s tennis and outdoor track and field. He helped publicize Edina Begic, who won back-to-back Sun Belt Conference Volleyball Offensive Player of the Year awards (2012 and 2013) and in the fall of 2013, win a national record of six-straight SBC Player of the Week Awards.
 
Prior to his time with the Trojans, Lofton spent two seasons as a gameday assistant with Tiffin University, mainly helping out with statistics in volleyball, basketball, softball and baseball.

From the fall of 2007-June of 2010, he was the Graduate Assistant/Intern in the athletic communications office. He was fortunate enough in three seasons to be the main or assistant contact for nine different squads who captured Mid-American Conference titles – including three in baseball, two in track and field, two in gymnastics and one in both cross country and wrestling. He also assisted with football in 2008 while also serving as the contact of volleyball in 2009.
