2012 G Josh Hagins of Bossier City Airline

Hagins is the latest player In our long tradition of great players from Louisiana who have suited up for the Texas D1 Ambassadors over the years. (Matt Derenbecker-LSU, Brian Williams-Oklahoma State, Trevante Drye-Tulane name a few). He’ll strap it on this July with the Texas D1 Ambassadors-Houston squad as they travel fom coast to coast putting their talents on display for hundreds of Division 1 coaches.

For Hagins it all starts on defense where he’s an outstanding on ball defender.  On offense when the ball is in his hands he’s able to do what all great PG’s do…get in the lane where he draws defenders and hits the open man.  He is tough to stay in front of but if you sag off him he’s more than capable of hitting an assortment of midrange shots or he’s also a threat to let fly his pretty rainbow three pointer.  He’ll compete alog with his D1 mates at the following live recruiting events.
