senior season at second base ... steady defensive player makes the routine play

... excels at turning the double play ... versatile enough to play shortstop and

third base ... solid at the plate ... can drive the ball out of the park but is

better when lashing line drives ... good run producer despite batting second in

the order ... great competitor ... can hit anywhere in the lineup ... could bat

in the three hole ... coaching staff would love to have a few more players like

him.
