Coach Corbin Quote: “Isaiah possesses great speed and athleticism. He takes some very advanced routes to the ball for a young kid and I could see him developing into a very good defensive center fielder in time. Offensively, he has strength in his bat and threatening speed on the bases. As he matures through game experience, he can advance his game and evolve into a competitive player in our league. He is a positive kid and I like what is in front of him.”
