Nate Gonzalez

Coach Corbin Quote: Nathan is a strong compact player who will provide us some catching depth initially. He has solid defensively abilities with a personality that could lend himself to being a future leader in our program. He was hampered with a hand injury all fall.

High School:
Led high school team to 2007 district championship title ... Named to Perfect Game Central Florida All-Senior team ... Second-team All-Area selection as a junior ... Honorable Mention All-Area as a sophomore ... Played with the Orlando Scorpions baseball team in the summer and fall ... Co-captain of the 2007 USA Youth National Team.

Personal:
Nathan Samuel Gonzalez ... Born 1/1/91 ... Son of Jose and Jackeline Gonzalez ... Has one brother, Nick ... Pre-medicine major ... Favorites include Albert Pujols (athlete), The Sandlot (movie), Baseball Tonight (TV show), Denzel Washington (actor) and Canton Jones (musician) ... Lists winning the 2007 World Championships with USA Youth National Team as his most memorable athletic experience ... Chose Vanderbilt because there is no better place to find an academic and baseball powerhouse than Vanderbilt.
