COACH CORBIN QUOTE: Johnny is at a point in his career where he will have a chance to impact the team offensively and in the outfield. He has overriding athletic ability that is not common in the college game. Observing and being patient has enhanced his growth the last two years. The transformation has been noticeable and his room for continuous advancement will be exciting to watch. His growth in maturity is what I'm most happy about.
