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.
