Connor McCoach, Director of Marketing and Promotions

Connor McCoach is a college student who recently finished his 3rd year of college at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. At Liberty University, Connor recently gained experience working as a Marketing and Promotions Assistant for the Men’s Division 1 Hockey team during the school year. Connor is working on completing his degree in Sport Management and is super excited to be furthering his experience working in sports with the Edenton Steamers this summer. After graduating from college in December of 2017, Connor would love to land a job in North Carolina working in the field of sports, prefferably baseball or hockey.

Connor was born and raised an hour north of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he grew up playing all kinds of sports, but focused on golf and baseball in high school. To this day baseball remains Connor’s favorite sport and he has a true connection and love for the game. However, being from Philadelphia comes with a cost, as Connor is a die hard fan of all Philly sports even though they no teams have seen success in many years.
