Corbin Quote: Few people invest in the game like this young man. Very driven in every phase of his life. He is equipped to help our team in several areas offensively. Ro got the opportunity to play quite a bit as a freshman and will do so again. He is versatile enough to help us in the infield as well as the outfield. He is very well respected by his peers and is a positive force as a teammate.
