The Rogers State men's golf team and coach Steve Brown recently announced the signing of Niko Coccio for the 2020-21 signee class.

Coccio joins the Hillcats from John Burroughs High School in Burbank, Calif. At John Burroughs, Coccio was ranked seventh in the CIF Pacific League with a stroke average of 73 for the 2019 season.

"Niko is a very enthusiastic and talented player out of California who we are looking to be a great competitor and teammate," Brown said. "He was on a great team that won all three of the events that they competed in before their season was cut short."

While at John Burroughs, Coccio helped his team to three-straight runner-up finishes in the CIF Pacific League Tournament in 2017, 2018 and 2019. Coccio also shot a personal best of 71, -1, in at the CIF Pacific League tournament in 2019.

"Niko has shown the ability to go low in tournaments, has a great attitude and really wants to be a part of our program and the Hillcat community," Brown said. "I believe he will be a great addition to our team."

Coccio was awarded the Coach's Leadership Award at his school for both the 2018 and 2019 seasons.

Coccio is one of six commits for the Hillcat golf team for the 2020-21 signee class.
