Head coach Tim Corbin on Davis: “The ultimate energized personality. Coop has a great disposition for life and the game of baseball…positive, fun, energetic and eyes wide open. He takes that disposition to the field with him. He is a dynamic player with a lot of top of the order skill sets. He has been an integral part of our lineup the last two years. Having him back for his senior year has been so beneficial for our program. Coop takes initiative and enjoys being an older brother who can take care of others.”
