Head Coach Phil Hawkins

Phil is entering his 8th season as the head coach of the Huntingdon Bearcats.  He, his wife of 33 years Mary Jane, and his 2 children are all passionate about soccer.  He can also be reached at his cell phone at 814-599-0956, 

"I take great pride in the Huntingon community and the youth involved in our soccer programs.  I am honored to be coaching the young men in the high school and continuing to coach in our youth programs.  Philosophically, my goal is to instill a life long love of the sport of soccer in the culture of the youth of Huntingdon.  Hopefully, this will translate into a commitment from the players to give back to the communities they migrate to after graduation as soccer coaches, mentors, referees, or volunteers in soccer programs.  I can't tell you how much the support of my family means to me in this undertaking!"  

Bearcat Pride!
