2015 ACC All-Freshman Team

Walter on Yurchak
"Justin is what we coaches like to call a lunch pail and hard hat player. He doesn't do anything flashy but every day he shows up and outworks people and everyday he does something to help the ball club win. He has a good left-handed bat and is in the mix to win the third-base job against right-handed pitching."
