Head coach Tim Corbin on Barczi: “Barz is an advanced freshman in our program who demonstrates a very good knowledge of the game. Whether he is playing offense or defense, you can sense the mental control of the game is in his favor. Colin has size, is strong and can run…rare athleticism for a big catcher. His personality is very natural and unassuming…he is a very good teammate and a future leader. He had a nice fall in the classroom as well.”
