Coach Corbin Quote: Jack has a tremendous presence on our team. "I will do anything," type kid. Has the athletic ability and arm strength to play all three-outfield positions and can also go behind the plate. He has refined his offensive game a great deal. He is a consistent kid in every way possible. He will impact our team in many positive ways.
