While serving as the assistant coach for the Lady Cougars, Huskisson was apart of a highly successful run including winning the Peach Belt Conference regular season and conference tournament twice.  In 2007, CSU set a school record with 58 wins and finished third at the NCAA Division II World Series, the best finish in school history. 

He spent five years as the head coach at Brescia University in Kentucky prior to his arrival at CSU.  While at Brescia, Huskisson took a losing program and earned conference, regional, and national attention winning 153 games in his five seasons. His first year was the only losing season he had while at Brescia.  The 2004 season marked success when he led the Lady Bearcats to a 44-22 record, winning the KIAC regular season championship, the Region XII Tournament, and finishing ninth at the NAIA World Series. His 2005 squad posted a 29-16 slate and won its third-straight KIAC championship, along with the league tournament. Huskisson developed one All-America player, 13 All-Region players, and 49 All-Conference performers during his tenure at Brescia. He also produced 23 Academic All-America performers, over 100 Dean's List students and was named Region XII Coach of the Year in 2003 and 2004.

Huskisson is a graduate of Western Kentucky University and, in addition to his collegiate coaching experience, has coached at the middle and high school levels.

He resides in Columbus with his wife Robin, who is a nurse manager at Columbus Regional Healthcare. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two labs, Katie and Dusty.

My daughter was really engaged at the NIKE Softball Camp at Columbus State University

"My daughter was an overnight camper (13-14 year old group ) and is a player for local teams in our hometown. She loved the experience and wants to return next year. She was given instruction to improve her technique in throwing and hitting that she can replicate back home with her team. She loved the staff and was really engaged in the camp!"

I hope to go back every year.

"The camp was very well-planned out and had a good program. The times to wakeup eat and play were reasonable and the instructors knew exactly what they were doing and taught the campers in an easy-to-understand way. I hope to go back every year!"

Taught My Daughter More Softball & Being A Young Lady

"I cannot put into words the experience my daughter gained from going to the camp. She not only learned skills in softball but how to be a better young lady. The morals and values the staff brought to the camp were extraordinary. We looked at sending her to another camp and decided on the NIKE Camp for convenience and I am so glad we did. She was going to be a day camper but when we got there she saw some friends and we were able to change her to be an overnight camper. I will highly recommend this camp to anyone who is interested in gaining skills and personal growth. We look forward to next year!!"

Creative Drills

"My daughter came home from camp telling us about all these new drills she learned. These drills were creative and helped her learn  the correct techniques. We will definitely be sending her back to this camp next year."
