Head coach Tim Corbin on Little: “Christian took on the responsibility of being a college student-athlete a year in advance. Although new to the environment, he has been respectful and deliberate with his habits thus far. Christian has the mental and physical abilities that will enable him to compete at this level. Learning the everyday routines of what that person looks like, is what he is entrenched with right now. Small steps and progressions are all that matters for this young man.”
