COACH CORBIN QUOTE: Will has been a steady influence in our program since the day he arrived. His defensive and offensive abilities put him on the field as a freshman and sophomore and will do so again this year. He has used this past summer and fall to grow in all aspects of his game. I really like where he is offensively and he is very adept at the third base position. Very competitive young man as shown by his winning of the Omaha Challenge.
