UAC Colts College Athletic Programs
UA Cossatot Soccer
Justin Hinman has been chosen to head the new soccer program at UA Cossatot. Born and raised in Little Rock, Hinman comes to UAC from National Park College, where he was the assistant men’s and women’s soccer coach as well as the head goalkeeper coach for both Nighthawks teams.
Hinman was a goalkeeper for Little Rock Catholic High from 2013-17. He played collegiately at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, OK, where he was named All-Conference, and All-Region. He wrapped up his college career at the University of Dayton, where he was a part of their Atlantic 10 Championship season of 2021. He went on to be the starting goalkeeper for the Little Rock Rangers of the USL 2.
UA Cossatot Chancellor Dr. Steve Cole praised Hinman for his energy and his vision for the Colts’ new soccer program. “I believe Coach Hinman is a builder, and starting this fall, we will have a home for a lot of athletes, men, and women. We encourage student-athletes to come be a Colt and be a part of something special.”
Colts’ Athletic Director Stan Asumnu said he was “excited to have Coach Hinman here. Justin is bright, has some great ideas, and wants to grow the sport of soccer in Arkansas.”
Hinman is familiar with De Queen, having played against the Leopards in high school. “I’m excited to be here. I am well aware of the soccer tradition here. This is a great opportunity to expand the sport and put UA Cossatot on the map as a junior college powerhouse.”

UA Cossatot Shooting Sports
The Colts are competing at the NJCAA Division II level in men’s and women’s clay target shooting. Brett Blackburn serves as the shooting sports coach.
UA Cossatot Chancellor Dr. Steve Cole added, “Shooting sports has become mainstream, especially in our area, and with the incredible interest from our local high school student-athletes, it just made sense for UA Cossatot to offer this sport for all men and women with interest in shooting sports.”
UA Cossatot has competed as a member of NJCAA Division II Region 2 in men’s and women’s basketball for the past three seasons. Clay target shooting is the first sport added to the UA Cossatot athletic department since joining the NJCAA, with preliminary plans for future sports under consideration.
UA Cossatot Clay Shooting Coach Brett Blackburn said, “The shooting program will build on the foundation started by high school and Jr high students of the AYSSP program from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. We look forward to building on these skills as the student-athletes grow as citizens and competitors at the collegiate level. Go Colts!”
