COACH CORBIN QUOTE - John may have been one of the unsung arms on last year's team as a freshman. He pitched some crucial games for us and became very reliable. I really like what he is going to become. He falls in line with several of the talented left-handed arms that have pitched for us at Vanderbilt. Hea?TMs a well-rounded kid who excels academically and has a great personality.
