Coach Farley on Matheson: "Tim got better as the fall season progressed. He was a little tentative early, like many of the freshmen. He got some big hits in the Butler World Series and played with increased confidence. He gets a great jump in the outfield and covers a lot of ground. He has the potential to be a lead-off type guy in our offense and make things happen."
