Head coach Tim Corbin on LaNeve: “We are very fortunate to have Troy back in our program for another year. He is a program kid. He thrives in team environments. He is a tough, self-directed, accountable kid who expects a lot from himself and everyone around him. He has worked very hard on his body and his game over this last year. Troy has had a knack for getting big hits in significant moments. He will impact our offense this year. He is strong, physical and has power to all fields, as well as being a very fundamental defensive outfielder.”
