SEASON OUTLOOK
Cosby got off to a bit of a slow start in 2015 before getting hot in the playoffs and winning the Conference 3 Tournament and reaching the Regional Semifinals. The Titans lost three Division I players to graduation and will have a younger team in 2016. Aside from those three pieces, the Titans return most of their lineup and should be solid defensively. On the mound, look for Hague, Hunt, and Squyars to step into larger roles as they look to replace the 78 dominant innings that Zach Mort (George Mason) threw in 2015. The Titans have a talented, young core and should improve as the season goes on and those players gain experience. Look for Cosby to again be dangerous in May and a threat to go deep in the 6A South Regional.
