COACH CORBIN QUOTE: After having a very good sophomore year and missing his junior year, Phil is ready to impact our rotation and pitching staff in a big way. When hea?TMs on the mound, Phil is one of the best competitors that we have had. He continues to improve in all phases of pitching and will certainly have a key role on our staff. I am really proud of his growth as a person and his productivity academically.
