COACH CORBIN QUOTE: A dynamic, strong, fast, powerful player who can impact the game in numerous ways. Rhett has always been able to swing the bat, but he has continually grown as an offensive player to where he is becoming a very difficult out. He also may be one of the more improved defensive players on our teama?b he made some tremendous defensive plays down the stretch that preserved games. A very positive kid who enjoys the team element.
