COACH BARLOW SAYS: "Despite injuries limiting his time in the outfield during various portions of his career, Stephen continued to make strides as a pitcher throughout his four years. Stephen improved every year on the mound and in '09 he was clearly one of our most dependable arms. Stephen's leadership both on and off the field will be tough to replace."
