COACH CORBIN QUOTE: Carson is a very rare combination of power arm, skill, athleticism, mentality and competitiveness. He is in a category by himself when it comes to all of these traits. He put together quite a year when he went from a big-game closer to a big-game starter midway through the season. He thrives in the arena of competition. Loves the team aspect and everything that it stands for.
