Coach Corbin Quote: D.J. is why coaches enjoy their profession. He asks for nothing but gives you everything. Tremendously committed to the team, he is a self-made player who shows continual improvement in all areas. He is a very good story for us as a kid who went from being a walk-on player to a usable piece of our team.
