More from the Angels:
The Western Carolina Angels are very proud to announce that JD Hinson has accepted the position of Director of Player Development and College Placement for the organization. “Our program has grown to the point where our original first group is now at their early recruiting stage. We have a great reach already to the SC and Ga schools with our SC Shockwave affiliation, we now wanted to strengthen our NC and TN connections with a person that bring more to us than just college connections”, added Collins. Coach Hinson’s core personal beliefs are what made this relationship the perfect fit. “Coach started the meeting talking about building young men with integrity and creating a culture of family in the group”. Coach Hinson will now join Coach Bergin Tathum in the development of our 15/16u players. “These two coaches bring over 75 years of college and high school coaching experience to our program. It’s like the perfect combination of experience, teaching and mentorship for all our players”, added Collins. The WC Angels won the Triple Crown NC State this year along with top 10 finishes in both national Perfect Game events. The older team comprised of the majority 15U kids competed under SC Shockwave 16U North in 17/18U events. The group will be starting invitation only evaluations this coming Sunday at Mars Hill College. Contact ANGELSWC@GMAIL.COM for more information
