Assistant Coach Andy Powell is joining the Division 3 team this year after spending last season assisting the Division 1 team. Originally from Central Arkansas, Coach Powell discovered his love for hockey later than most. In high school, he started working at the Arkansas Skatium in Little Rock (one of two ice rinks in Arkansas) and used his downtime at the rink to learn the ins and outs of hockey.
While attending the University of Arkansas, Coach Powell played on the first official Razorback Club Hockey Team. In his 3-year career, the team won back-to-back SEC Championships (2010 & 2011).
Coach Powell holds a B.A. in Business Administration, with a focus in Finance. Off the ice, he works in sales for a supplier to Walmart and Sam’s Club. Coach Powell and his wife McKenzie live in Rogers and are expecting a daughter this fall.
