Head coach Tim Corbin on LaNeve: “Troy is a program guy, through and through. Unselfish young man. He is going to do what the team needs. His patience has been tested over the last year because of injury. He continues to work hard to put himself back on the field at some point. Troy has been a growing part of our offense over the last two years. He has the ability to drive the ball to all sides of the field with strength. His outfield jumps, tracking abilities and throwing continue to improve as well.”
