Coach Corbin Quote: Kevin is one the premier left-handed pitchers in our conference and in the country. He has been a consistent mainstay on our staff since his freshman year. We will be very reliant upon him again this year. He possesses special abilities and has continually improved. I am really proud of how he developed as a pitcher, student (Dean's List) and as a leader for our club.
