prep head coaches in effort to boost baseball in area
MAIDEN – Athletes Lab, a Maiden-based organization focused on developing local baseball players, has added former Mars Hill University head baseball coach Aaron Rembert to its staff.
Starting Monday, he will lead the day-to-day operations of Athletes Lab as the company’s COO, working alongside his brothers Grant (CEO and owner) and Fore (vice president).
“We are very pleased to announce the addition of Aaron Rembert to the organization,” Grant Rembert said in a press release. “He has devoted his life to the game of baseball, development of young men on and off the field and recruiting.
“His experience and background running an extremely successful program as a collegiate head coach and recruiting coordinator at an (NCAA) Division I school for a combined 15 years will give our athletes … invaluable access to the latest in pitching development, recruiting/college contacts and overall player development.”
Aaron Rembert was head baseball coach at Mars Hill University for seven seasons, compiling a record of 149-170-1 that included a 30-win team in 2016.
Athletes Lab’s coaching staff now includes Cameron Beard, head of team programs, and Adam Windham (14-U coach), John Markley (15-u coach, pitching coordinator), Greg Kirk (13-u coach), Channon Vogel (10-u coach), Dana Burns (10-u coach) and Todd Jenkins (8-u coach). The staff has more than 75 years of coaching experience at the college and high school level.
Beard was a prep baseball star at Bunker Hill, where he is entering his sixth season as an assistant coach, and he is also a past head coach of Hickory Post 48’s American Legion baseball team.
Windham (St. Stephens), Markley (West Lincoln) and Vogel (Fred T. Foard) are current high school head coaches.
Aaron Rembert was a standout at Maiden in high school, playing on the Blue Devils’ 1999 state 1A championship team. He was all-state, conference player of the year and an All-American that season, and Maiden has retired his baseball jersey.
He played college baseball at UNC Asheville, earning All-American honors as a freshman after setting a school record for saves.
Aaron Rembert spent four years as an assistant coach at Mars Hill and also coached in the Cape Cod League before moving to UNC Asheville for three years as pitching coach.
He is leaving Mars Hill after seven seasons as head coach.
“I am excited for this opportunity and I am excited for my family and I to get back into the area,” Aaron Rembert said in the press release. “I look forward to expanding Athletes Lab, making a positive impact on the athletes in the area and mentoring young men on their journey from a young age to reaching their goals of playing in college and beyond.”
