Coach Corbin Quote:  Jayson is coming off a freshman year where he saw a good amount of playing time. He was a consistent third base option, and showed positive signs of being a complete player. He spent his summer in the NECBL which allowed him opportunity to grow his game. He is a big, strong, athletic young man who has made strides in his personal fitness level.  With more game experience, Jayson has the ability to be a very dangerous hitter in our league. He is well liked by his teammates and has a high care level for our program.
