Coach Holowaty: “Jeff is another kid who I think is a sleeper. He’s got to keep developing, and if he does,  I think he’ll be able to help us out in the varsity program.  It all depends on if he can step up and develop that intimidating pitch, and if he becomes a pitcher, not a thrower. He’ll be getting experience both in JV and varsity this year."
