UNC Wilmington senior captain Michael Mechem has signed his first pro contract with local USL club Wilmington Hammerheads.

The four-year starter for the Seahawks tallied 67 starts in 71 games in the defense, registering three assists. He was named Second Team All-Colonial Athletic Association this season.

“He was outstanding this past fall for us at center back, performed at a really high level, and was a leader and captain for our team,” Seahawks coach Aidan Heaney said in a release on the team’s website. “His goal was to play at the next level and I’m delighted it will be here locally with the Hammerheads.”
