COACH CORBIN QUOTE: He is one of the most reliable kids that I have been around. His `way[apos] of life translates to the ball field. He has touched the baseball more than any other pitcher we have had in our program. He is a `winning player and person[apos] who is highly focused and quietly competitive. Not surprisingly, one of our best students on the team as well. Servant personality… loves the team more than his position.
