Head coach Tim Corbin on LaNeve: “Troy really came on for us in the middle of the year. He was very patient, but once he got his opportunity, he really helped our team and became a clutch offensive player. He is a strong kid who can hit the ball with power to all fields. Troy can play the corner outfield positions but has also trained at first base. Respected and well-liked member of our team…team guy.”
