New head baseball coach chosenApr 18, 2022
Rockingham Community College will welcome a new head baseball coach in June, according to Maggie Murray, director of Student Engagement and Athletics.
Daniel Huff has been appointed to succeed Reece Honeycutt, who has led the Eagles for seven baseball seasons. Huff’s focus will be to recruit, continue excellence on and off the field, and prepare the team for the fall 2022 season.
Huff is a graduate of Person High School in Roxboro, and received his bachelor’s degree in Human Health Performance/Teacher Prep at Emory & Henry College in Southwest Virginia. He played on Emory & Henry’s baseball team from 2014-2018.
His baseball coaching experience includes serving as volunteer assistant coach at Emory & Henry in 2018 and assistant varsity and head JV coach at Person High School the following year.
Since 2019, he has served as assistant coach for the summer league in Cape Cod, Massachusetts with the Cotuit Kettleers, and as assistant coach/hitting coach for University of South Carolina Lancaster.
“We’re so excited to have Daniel step into the role as head baseball coach for the Eagles. In addition to bringing a relevant knowledge of baseball, he brings energy, excitement, and passion. Our Eagles will continue to soar, as they have in years past, with his leadership,” Murray said.
“I am extremely excited to get to work in the program,” Huff said. “This is a wonderful opportunity for me to continue and build upon the success of Rockingham Community College baseball on and off the field.”
