      Tompkins shared one word and descriptive sentences of his senior players:

      Noah Chambers - Athlete... He's fun to be around. He's funny. He works hard. He loves to win. He loves to help other teammates.

      Matthew Hartsock - Tenacity... Hard worker. Took a couple years off so he is knocking the rust off still but working hard and it is coming together for him right at the right time.

      Mason Jacobs - Wonderful... He's a wonderful teammate, good to have on the team. Never says anything bad about anybody. Just a good all-around teammate to have. Good pitcher.

      Grant Lathrop - Rocker... I wish I had him all four years. Hard worker. Good teammate. Brings nothing but positive things to the team and to the field. And a great musician, he plays the anthem for us.

      Peyton Lewis - Tough... He's tough as nails. Works hard. Good athlete, good teammate. A little tough on himself sometimes.

      Isaiah Nelson - Stubborn... He brings a lot to the team. Good baseball IQ. Hates to lose, almost as much as I do. He is tough on himself so he is tough on his teammates sometimes. When he is on a roll he is tough to beat.

      Preston Williams - Leader... He brings a positive, good attitude. Pretty much outworks everybody. Great attitude, good leader. He's been the team captain for the past two years. He has pitched great for us.
