Quoting Coach Pavlik
Will is a returning All-American. He's played opposite, he's played left side and even set some in his career. Will is going to be counted on to take some huge swings for us and to pass balls in crucial points in games. His serving behind the line is going to get us some points. Through the fall, his serve has been looking really good for us and we should get some points there. Everybody knows who Will is, so he's going to have to fight through times when our opponent is saying, `Will Price, we're not going to let you beat us.' I think Will is poised to have a very good year." solid offense for his team."
