Servais on Furlong:
“I was impressed with what Brian did for our program last year as the director of baseball operations. He is hard working and has familiarity with our program both as a player and as a member of the staff. I liked some of his ideas on developing a long-throwing program. We are very pleased with his impact on the program already.”
