COACH CORBIN QUOTE: Coop is the epitome of team first, individual second. His personal road in our program has been `choppy' at times because of injuries, but it has never deterred his personality, attitude and effort. His offensive game has components of strength and speed and he continues to grow into a productive outfielder as well.
