Colby Brewington - Brewington will be a big part of the Vikings' success in 2023 and will help fill some key roles left behind by the previous graduating class.



The Vikings are a senior team led by the pitching staff. Mack Estrada will be joined in the rotation by Anthony Schatz and Daniel Hartley along with sophomore Carson Martin. Sophomore Mitchell Rodriguez, a FSU commit will be the starting catcher replacing Brody Donay, who is now at Virginia Tech. The infield will be anchored at shortstop by returning starter Wyatt Jenkins, a TCC commit. The Vikings are a veteran team who has had success in the past and should be tough again in 2023.
