Coach Corbin Quote: Reed comes to us with prior college experience that will prove to be valuable in several areas. He has shown us the ability to swing the bat and hit with power during the fall. Where he may impact us the most is on the mound. He is highly competitive and fearless when he steps on the rubber. His arm strength and his knack for throwing the ball where he wants to are in place. I really like the competitive fibers of the young man.
