Head coach Tim Corbin on Davis: “I’ve seen Jayden play since he was 15 years old, and I still come away with the same feelings…he’s a throwback player. No maintenance, tough and consistent. He plays the game for his team and for the love of competing. He keeps the game simple and straight forward. He’s a strong kid who can give our team a loud presence at the plate. Jayden also has the ability to play several positions inside the infield. He did a really nice job in the classroom in his first fall.”
