Coach Corbin Quote: Spencer may be the most talented catcher we have had in our program. He's tough, durable and possesses overriding arm strength. He competes as well as anyone we have on our club. We will be very reliant on his leadership behind the plate. He is a very competitive hitter as well and a big part of our offense.
