Coach Corbin Quote: Having Drew come back for a fifth year is a great thing for our program in many ways. He stabilizes our catching situation and also gives us tremendous experience with a young pitching staff. He has caught some very important games for us over the last four years. He handles the bat very well and is skilled at getting on base. Most importantly, he has always been a team-first guy, who sets a great example for young players with his attitude and routine.
