Associate Head Coach/Pitching Coach Alan Dunn on Will Ripoll:
"Will is another versatile athlete who was a two-way player that helped lead his team to a state championship his senior year. On the mound, he brings an aggressive demeanor in which he attacks the zone with a high 80s fastball and a wipeout 12-to-6 curveball. His athleticism gives him the ability to repeat his mechanics and delivery. This will allow him to control the strike zone and make adjustments which will give him the opportunity to compete for innings in the bullpen very quickly."
