COACH CORBIN QUOTE:One of the better receivers we have had in our program. He is a calm and quiet presence that quickly gained the attention of our pitching staff in his first year. Jason throws extremely well and continues to grow with his pitch-calling skills. He has strength in his bat and has continually improved offensively as well. Great student.
