    Good guy to have on any team. Can play all Outfield positions but also a great guy to have as a teammate.

  6. Dan Kirkwood says:

    Tremendous talent with Conference experience. Stadium power, strong arm and extremely fast in the OF and on the bases. Great team player and positive attitude. Should be a starter somewhere, a team lacking OF depth would certainly benefit from picking him up.
