Florida State Hires Troy Cameron As Hitting Coach
On Monday, Florida State announced the hiring of Troy Cameron as the softball program's new hitting coach, head coach Lonni Alameda informed Softball America.
Cameron, who was a first-round draft pick by the Atlanta Braves in 1997, played professional baseball for nine years.
"The culture of our program has been built by many people that love FSU," Alameda said in a release. "Troy and (his wife) Lauren love FSU, love Tallahassee and want to be here to make a difference. We pride ourselves with sincere family values and I am so happy for this opportunity to welcome the Cameron family to our program."
Cameron was most recently the head baseball coach at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where he coached for the past seven years. He has also worked with USA Baseball since 2013.
"My dream has always been to wear the Garnet and Gold, and thanks to Lonni and Travis (Wilson), not only do I get to live out that dream, but I get to share it with my wife Lauren, daughter Jaden, and a baby boy on the way," Cameron said in a release. "I owe everything to St. Thomas Aquinas for giving me a chance to start my coaching career, and thank you also to the hundreds of kids that have played for me and have been a part of my journey."
