Coach Corbin Quote: Will is coming off a great summer where he was selected as an NECBL All-Star. He didn't see a lot of playing time for us last year, but now comes into 2012 looking to make an impact. He has a nice swing and has the ability to be a quality all-around offensive player. He's versatile enough to play several outfield and infield positions as well.

Singled in a run in his first collegiate at-bat against Wofford 3/8... SUMMER BALL - Was a New England Collegiate Baseball League All-Star hitting .298 in 39 games with five home runs, 22 runs and 22 RBI.
