Associate Head Coach/Pitching Coach Alan Dunn on Cole Henry:
"Cole has a three-pitch mix of a mid-90s fastball, hard 12-to-6 curveball, and late fading changeup. His physical attributes, combined with an advanced knowledge of pitching, will allow him to make a quick adjustment to the college game and be a pitcher that will be counted on to make an immediate impact. The sky is the limit for Cole as I believe he will turn into a premier power pitcher in our league."
