2014 marks Lingenfelder's 16th season of coaching football, ,6th season in the IFL, and his second season as a Head Coach of the Wyoming Cavalry.

Lingenfelder grew up in Lake Havasu City, AZ. One of his greatest memories of his childhood is playing quarterback on his flag football team, the Lakeland Plumbers, and leading his team
to the city championship.

Lingenfelder attended Northern Arizona University (1993-1998) where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Athletic Coaching. While attending Northern Arizona University, he was a four-year starter for the Lumberjacks football team, playing center.

."I lived in the weight room," chimes in Lingenfelder. "I believe in strengthening and conditioning. I believe players have a competitive edge on the field if they have strength and conditioning supporting their athletic abilities."

During the spring of 1998, Lingenfelder was recruited by the Arizona Rattlers of the AFL. He played for the Rattlers and then the Portland Forrest Dragons before he fell victim to a career-ending knee injury.

"My one season of professional experience as a player was enough for me to know that football is, and always has been, a passion of mine," says Lingenfelder. "I knew I would do anything to continue along this career path; and I knew I would make the most out of each and every opportunity. I want the people of Wyoming to know that I am deeply committed to the Wyoming Cavalry, and I will do my very best to recruit the best men for our team. I will recruit men with a strong work ethic and strong character."

Lingenfelder is no stranger to coaching, indoor football or Wyoming. Prior to joining the Cavalry, Lingenfelder spent four seasons with Division foe, Tri Cities Fever. Lingenfelder joined the Fever in 2009 as the ‘big man’ coach in charge of the FBs, LBs, and O-and D-Lines.

In 2010, he served as Defensive Coordinator when the Fever moved from the AF2 to the Indoor Football League (IFL). In 2010, the Fever defense led the IFL in Defensive touchdowns. Under Lingenfelder's lead, the Fever defense ranked at the top in many categories. In addition, Lingenfelder played a key role as Defensive Coordinator for the Fever in their back-to-back Conference Titles and their two appearances in the United Bowl.

"I am more than excited to be back with the Cavalry this season. I learned so much last year in my role of head coach. The Wyoming fans are the best."

"I look forward to 2014, the Cavs' 15th Anniversary, with a lot of encouragement," continues Lingenfelder.

Prior to his time with the Fever, Lingenfelder spent two years as an assistant at the University of Idaho, working as an offensive line coach and as a tight ends coach for the Vandals. And, prior to his coaching time with the Vandals, Lingenfelder was the offensive coordinator at a local high school in Idaho Falls, ID.

In 2003, Lingenfelder was the Offensive Coordinator for Phoenix Junior College in Arizona. "I learned a great deal during my time at Phoenix Junior College," says Lingenfelder. "This was where I really learned about the demands placed on a coach and how important it was to manage my time. I learned very quickly how to ‘make things happen’. One of my greatest accomplishments here was being able to send one of my players to play for UCLA."

Not counting the season Lingenfelder spent coaching his little brother’s grid kid team, his first coaching experience was in 2002. He was the Offensive Coordinator for Cortez High School in Glendale, AZ. His time with the Cortez High School was the springboard into coaching and future opportunities.

"Coach L is a great fit for Wyoming. He recruits great players, not just on the field, but off the field. It is important that he brings men of integrity to our community, with a willingness to give
of  their time in the community," says Director of Business Operations, Argeri Layton.
