(August 2, 2018) –Christopher (CJ) Trammell has been named head men’s soccer coach for the 2018-19 academic year at Hagerstown Community College.
“CJ Trammell is an excellent choice for our program for many reasons,” said HCC Athletic Director Robert Rohan. “He continues a lineage of coaches that bring a great sense of pride and commitment to the Men’s Soccer program here at HCC. Having played here, Coach Trammell understands the value and the opportunity our program brings to many skilled student-athletes in and around our community. He demonstrates a high level of knowledge and confidence that will serve as a great asset to the development of the young men in this program. We are very excited about CJ’s interest in continuing to build the program, and look forward to working with him and seeing this team on the field during the fall.”
An HCC alumnus, Trammell helped make team history in 2010 with a 6-0 season start as a defensive midfielder. After graduating from HCC, he transferred to Waynesburg University, primarily playing center back for the Yellow Jackets, while earning a bachelor’s degree in sports management and an M.B.A. in market development. Trammell currently works for DC United and Plamondon Companies providing marketing services.
“I am excited to take over as the head coach for HCC. I always enjoyed the attention to detail and professional atmosphere both Brandon Rethemeyer and Brian Eichelberger instilled in this program. That's what originally attracted me to it as a player,” said Trammell. “My plan is to continue what Brandon and Brian had started. It's a good way to help student-athletes grow, develop both on and off the field, as well as setting them up for success and potential leadership roles at the next level. I'm hoping to have the same impact on my players that Brandon and Brian had on me.”
