Doug Golden was a 3 year baseball letterman at Dulles High School in Sugar Land, TX where he was selected as the team MVP and a member of the All State Team during his senior year. He played for the Columbia Angels and Clay Hill during the summers and fall of both his Junior and Senior years. Doug received a scholarship to play baseball at Lamar University, but decided to transfer to Houston Baptist University after his first season at Lamar. During his time at HBU, the team won the Red River Athletic Conference Championships in 1999, 2000, & 2001. Doug was All Conference and offensive MVP in 1999, then earned All Conference honors again in 2001 along with the Coaches’ Award. Doug set HBU records for batting average at .429 and the single season record for RBI’s with 71 in 1999. He finished at HBU with a career batting average of .343. As a successful college player, Doug continued his relationship with Clay Hill and the Columbia Angels as a coach for the organization. After earning his degree in Marketing and Administration, he decided to focus his attention on working with emotionally disturbed children, so he returned to school to earn his teaching certificate and now works as a Special Education teacher. Doug has been coaching with the Columbia Angels since 2001 and, in 2009, he was asked by Clay Hill to take on operational duties for the organization.
