Hodgin joins staff at Shenandoah

SoVaNow.com / February 21, 2013
Former Halifax County High School head football coach, Stan Hodgin, has joined Shenandoah University as offensive coordinator for the football team..

Shenandoah University head football coach Scott Yoder announced the completion of his full-time staff Tuesday.

Hodgin brings a wealth of coaching experience to the table as the Hornets new offensive coordinator. In addition to 20 years of high school experience in both Virginia and North Carolina as a head coach, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, Hodgin has been an assistant at both Averett University and Emory & Henry College in the past three seasons.

After spending 2010 at Averett tutoring the Cougars quarterbacks, Hodgin moved to E&H to become the Wasps’ offensive coordinator.

This past season, Emory & Henry threw for a second-best-in-the-league 264 yards per game and three different players earned All-ODAC honors.

“Stan knows the ODAC and is the perfect person to coordinate our offense. I have complete confidence in his ability to run a balanced attack for us,” Yoder said.

Shenandoah opens its 2013 season on Sept. 7 with a non-league home game against Gallaudet University.
