Head coach Tim Corbin on Futrell: “Devin proved his worth time and time again over the year. One of the more consistent freshman years that we have had from a pitcher in my time here. You know what you are going to get from him. He competes, pitches for his tea, throws strikes with several pitches and doesn’t give in to the hitter. His demeanor is consistent in all areas of being a student-athlete. His ceiling is high, and he recognizes that he has more work to do, but Devin is a very reliable young man.”
