Coach Corbin Quote: Sterling is a great addition to our program. He has a positive disposition with the patience and willingness to learn. He has trended in a positive direction with his defensive skills and invested time outside of the training environment to grow his offensive game this fall. It is apparent that he wants to learn from the older players and is a very teachable kid. Sterling is a mature young man who will end up being a very consistent player in our program. He is a winning player.
