This page is dedicated to the young men that have come through the Angels Program and are now playing at the Collegiate Level, Professional Level, or are performing service around their community that we believe should be highlighted for everyone to see. Once an Angel, always an Angel!
Two Angels alumni spent this past Spring not playing between the lines; but rather, leading from outside the lines. Brandon Costa and David Brown spent the 2022 Spring season helping to guide UVA Wise and Ouachita Baptist University to two outstanding seasons.
Costa Named UVA Wise Coach of the Year
Brandon Costa completed a successful first year at the helm for UVA-Wise, improving the team’s win total by 13 games from the 2021 season.
Brandon spent the 2018-2021 seasons as an Assistant Coach at UVA-Wise, where he served as the team’s hitting coach and Recruiting Coordinator.
Brandon also spent one year as an Assistant Coach at Radford University in 2017, after completing his playing career at Concord University.
Brown Promoted at Ouachita
David Brown recently completed his second season as Pitching Coach for Ouachita Baptist University, helping lead the Tigers to their first 30-win season in 10 years. The team set a new school record in conference wins and qualified for the D2 NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2008.
In July, Brown was rewarded for his efforts, and in addition to his duties as Pitching Coach, was promoted to Recruiting Coordinator.
