Head coach Tim Corbin on Reilly: “If you could sculpt out a pitcher’s physique, you would start here. Patrick is one of the more impressive athletes on our team. He has very good size, strength, and mobility. Where Patrick excels is his work ethic and his commitment to get better. His arm and his overall assortment of pitches have a chance to be different. He is a locked-in kid, who has a high care level for everything that he does. He has the opportunity to make a big impact on our team this year. Patrick is a high achieving student-athlete.”
