#7 Nathan Sensing
|HOMETOWN (PREVIOUS SCHOOL)||Nashville, Tenn. (Montgomery Bell Academy)|
Coach Fletcher Quote: "Nathan Sensing is a senior who played two years in right field for us. We are going to move him over to center field, and I think that is just a tribute to his athletic ability. He could probably play any position on the field. He will start the season in the three hole for us. We are counting on him to have a big year. We hope he plays as hard every day as he did in the fall, because he can bring a lot to the table when he is right."
