Coach Corbin Quote: Connor has been a mainstay in center field since his freshman year. He is the best overall athlete on our team. He is completely unselfish and team oriented. The growth that he has made offensively has been substantial. During his career, he has come up with more clutch and game-winning plays than anyone I can remember. Vanderbilt baseball is very fortunate to get him back for his senior year.
