Head Coach Paul Mainieri on Gavin Dugas:
"I can't wait to get to work with Gavin Dugas, as he is so enthusiastic about beginning his career at LSU. He wants to work hard and learn as much as he can about the game of baseball and what it takes to win. He also has a lot of talent and swings the bat with consistency and pop. He has had an outstanding summer in a collegiate summer league prior to his enrolling at LSU and has already shown he can handle college pitching. Gavin has a chance to step in right away and make a difference for our team."
