The Lynchburg College athletic department each week showcases a question and answer feature with our Hornet of the Week. The fifth student-athlete selected this year is men's soccer sophomore Josh Hinkle.
Hinkle has been a force defensively for the Hornets this year. He has helped them allow only 10 goals on the year. This past week, he contributed to the back-to-back shutouts of ODAC foes Randolph College and Randolph-Macon College.
Why did you choose Lynchburg College?
I chose LC because of its prior history in soccer and also the coaching staff here made me feel very welcome during the recruiting process.
How do you think being a student-athlete has affected you personally?
Being a student athlete has tremendously helped me out in the classroom, especially during the season when there is not much free time, and I really have to concentrate on studying.
What do you like most about LC men's soccer?
My favorite aspect of being a member on the soccer team is the family atmosphere on the team and also the camaraderie between our teammates.
What are your aspirations after graduation?
I plan on coaching soccer after I graduate from LC.
