Huffman: "I look forward to bringing my knowledge of the game and helping our kids in this program get better, and ultimately, get them to the college level and beyond."
Cavaiani on Huffman: "In addition to ET being my best hire, his good friend from college, Brandon, was a package deal. Brandon is from North Carolina and moved here to be closer to ET after their pro careers were over. Brandon's baseball knowledge is off the charts and is starting to come into his own as a coach himself. He played for the Evoshield Canes out of Virginia which is arguably one of the best programs in the country. He had heck of a prep career where it saw him commit to the University of North Carolina in only his sophomore year. Brandon has a quiet demeanor but has quickly realized his potential as a top line coach. He is assisting ET with our 14U group this summer but will play a bigger role in the fall and next Summer as he will have his pick of which team he'd like to take on his own as a head coach. Brandon is the kind of person and coach anyone would like on their staff because he is all about the kids. He loves the game, he loves the kids, and that's what this is all about and why we do this. I'm lucky and honored to have him coach in our program."
