Head coach Tim Corbin on Horn: “David is starting to make great progress on our staff. The physical stuff is undeniable, but the maturity, focus and desire to be good, is beginning to take shape. He shined in key moments on the mound last year as a freshman and built on them this summer in the NECBL. David is a low maintenance young man and a pleasure to coach. Mature, self-directed, personable, and competitive. Everything matters to him, as shown by his work in the classroom.”
