Coach Corbin Quote: Ethan is mature in most everything that he does… for that reason alone, I enjoy coaching him. He was able to find his way on the field regularly as a freshman at several different infield positions. He possesses good feet, soft hands and a strong instinct for the game. Where he really stood out was his bat. He quickly became a offensive threat with the ability to hit the ball to all fields. He is very serious about what he is doing and how he does it.
