Head coach Tim Corbin on Kolwyck: “Tate is a positive force every time he shows up to the field. He loves to play the game and he loves the people he does it with. He is a very athletic kid who can help us in many areas on the field. Although is very adept in the infield, he can also track the ball very well in the outfield. The area that he has grown the most is on the offensive side, where he is commanding the strike zone and driving the ball. He had a great summer and followed that up with a much-improved fall.”
