A Good Catcher...

A good catcher is the quarterback, the carburetor, the lead dog, the pulse taker, the traffic cop and sometimes a lot of unprintable things, but no team gets very far without one.
--Miller Huggins (1879-1929) Baseball player and manager

Above: Milligan College junior Brandon Murphy (Johnson City, TN) visits the mound to talk with senior Jon Stoudt (Marietta, GA) during a recent game. Each of the descriptions mentioned in this quote fits Murphy perfectly (well, except for the part that mentions "unprintable things"). I have enormous respect for students like Murphy and Stoudt who are truly 'scholar athletes' -- who excel both on the field and in the classroom. Today, Milligan faces rival King College in the opening round of the AAC Conference Tournament at Hunter Wright Stadium in Kingsport, TN. Go Buffaloes!
