Head coach Tim Corbin on Schultz: “Thomas’ last outing in March of 2020, left a strong impression on our staff and team. He is mature, deliberate and a very invested young man. One of the best athletes on our team. His academic output and his drive to work are strong indicators of what his future could look like. His pitch development has improved vastly over the last 12 months. He is socially skilled and a pleasure to be around. He will impact our pitching staff this year.”
