As I drove down Ocean Drive towards the TAMUCC campus, chocked full of anticipation for my senior season, I began to reflect upon my past three years as an Islander. It amazes me how this baseball program has evolved and changed in my short tenure here. I thought about all of my teammates that have come and gone through this program, and what being an Islander has meant to me.
