COACH CORBIN QUOTE- We are fortunate to have Jason back in our program. He has been a huge part of our defensive success the past three years and will be leaned upon heavily going into the season. He possesses one of the best throwing arms that we have had here at that position. Very deliberate and intentional in his everyday investment as a player. From a student-athlete perspective, they’re very few who excel at the level he does academically and athletically.
