Head coach Tim Corbin on Owen: “Hunter is a highly competitive and tough young man. He does not back down from anything and is that type of kid that you want in your foxhole. In his three years, he has transformed himself mentally, physically, emotionally and academically. He is very connected to team competition and loves this environment. On the mound, Hunter has improved every year and this fall was no different. He continues to blossom into one of our most dependable arms on the team. He will impact our team in a big way.”
