Coach Corbin Quote: It has been fun watching Sam develop through the years. He came to our summer camp as a junior in high school weighing 150 pounds. To watch him develop physically and on the mound has been very gratifying for our staff and him personally. He has been very patient waiting for his opportunity and now he will get that chance - he's going to have a great year.
