Hooks Headed to Lees-McRae College

12

Dominique Hooks is a transfer from the University of South Carolina-Salkehatchie. During his time there, he was the senator for West Campus Student Government Association. The Moncks Corner, S.C., native was the recipient of the LIFE academic scholarship, twice, while being awarded the Scurry Foundation academic scholarship as a sophomore. He worked as a tutor and mentor for elementary school children.

Prior to USC-Salkehatchie, Hooks graduated from Berkeley High School in Moncks Corner, S.C. He was the first male player in school history to be awarded a college soccer scholarship. He was a four-year starter while leading the team in scoring and assists as a junior and senior.

“Dom is comfortable on the ball and does the simple things well,” said Squires. “He will add experience to our roster coming in as a junior and is versatile enough to play at the back or in midfield, adding depth to our squad.”

Hooks is a member of the Goose Creek United club team.

He is the son of David and Angela Hooks. He has an older brother, David Jr. and an older sister, Noelle. He intends on majoring in Criminal Justice.

“I chose LMC because of the reputation with its academic and athletic departments. The facilities and campus are really nice and I like the small campus feel,” spoke Hooks. “I also chose LMC because coach Squires came from the LMC program. He has a vision for success that will make each one of us on the team better players and students.”
