Coach Keyes on Octavi:
"Nick was one of the best defensive catchers in all of junior college baseball last year. He is a plus catch and throw guy who threw out 75% of base runners this season. His ability to handle a pitching staff, as well as, toughness behind the plate will be valuable this year with so many new pitchers in the program."
