Coach Corbin Quote: Shea has come a long way in four years. He never caught before his college career, and I think if you polled the coaches around the SEC, they[apos]d tell you he[apos]s one of the best defensive catchers in the league right now. He[apos]s really grown into the position and I like what he has become.
