Coach Eric Cameron comes to Cottey having competed as a collegiate athlete in baseball at the NJCAA and NCAA Division II levels. He studied golf under Coach Rick Burk in 2014/2015 and is certified as a Professional Golf Coach through the Next Level Golf USA™ (NLGU) Performance Program in Virginia. He has been a Swing Coach for NLGU since 2015, helping kids in the Nevada area through private instruction, including high school athletes and younger junior golfers. Cameron has experience coaching and developing contacts on many of the top junior golf tours around the nation, including the Hurricane Tour, Future’s Junior Golf Tour, North Texas Junior Golf Tour, First Tee, and the U.S. Kids Tour. One of his current students, his daughter Emree, “M & M,” age 10, is considered one of the best up and coming Junior female golfers in the nation.
“I’m very excited to be joining the Cottey athletics team and to get the golf program moving in the direction that was intended when the administrators added women’s golf to the athletic programing,” commented Cameron. “Within this first year, I hope to recruit enough athletes to compete as a team and start building a family. From there it’s a no brainer; we want to be playing golf deep into May at the National Championship.”
