Coach Corbin Quote: Drake was an accomplished winning pitcher throughout his amateur years and he has brought that mentality into our program in a quiet natural way. He has good size, manipulates the ball well and has an advanced approach for a young kid. He has advanced his body in the weight room which should benefit him immediately.
