Jordan Wormsley - 26
Coach Corbin Quote: Jordan has been a part of many good teams since his freshman year. He has been a role player the last three years, but continues to improve and will challenge to play regularly this year. He stayed here this summer to work on his strength and bat. He is very good defensive outfielder and one of the most unselfish players that I have coached. He's completely invested in the team and will do anything to better the group.
