Robbie Wine on Dan Plunkett
- "Plunk has continued to get better every year. That is a credit to his work ethic and determination through the years. He is a tremendous team player and well liked by all. Plunk showed us some power this fall along with more consistency with the bat. Dan is a very good student as well."
