Former Panther and Florida Tech graduate Jonathan Hanna enters his second season as an assistant of head coach Bill Macom in 2011-12.
A four-year student-athlete for the Crimson and Gray, Hanna left his mark on and off the tennis court. As a sophomore, he held a regional ranking of No. 14 and helped defeat the No. 3 doubles team in the nation. In his final season, he and fellow senior Noe Losmozos finished the year 25th in the country in doubles. Following the conclusion of his collegiate career, Hanna was the recipient of numerous sportsmanship honors, awarded by Florida Tech, the Sunshine State Conference and the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
As an undergraduate, the Nassau, Bahamas native was a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), serving as the vice president of his campus SAAC and secretary of the conference SAAC in 2009-10.
Hanna started playing tennis at age seven and was coached by Bradley Bain as a youth. To develop and improve his game, he traveled to countries throughout Central America and the Caribbean, participating in junior tournaments. As a result of his hard work, he held the No. 1 ranking at the U18 level in the Bahamas.
While he attended high school at St. Augustine’s College, he developed a passion for aviation. In May 2010, Hanna graduated from Tech with an undergraduate degree in aviation management.
After representing his school as a player, he will now shift his focus to helping his former teammates and the new student-athletes achieve their tennis goals.
