BRAD ZAMBRON
GRAND VALLEY STATE LAKERS

Coach Jamie Detillion on Brad Zambron:

Brad is a winner. When he enters the game it's a strong sense of confidence amongst his teammates that the game is over. He prepares to excel and competes when the game is on the line and matters the most. He is who you want on the mound the most to close out a championship game!

To me, it is obvious why Brad is the best in the business. He “brings his lunch pail to work everyday”. Throughout the season, especially in baseball, it is easy to take days off – or go through the motions. Not for Brad, he is self-motivated, reliable, consistent, and has what it takes to be a true leader on and off the field. Nevertheless, Brad has this “swagger” about him, when he steps out onto the mound he knows he is going to beat you. It’s not a coincidence as to why he is one of the most decorated pitchers in Division II.

Throughout Brad’s career, he has exemplified what it is to be a true “team player” and that is exactly why he has had such an outstanding career here at GVSU. He continually is one the best pitchers on the staff each year. However, he has accepted the role to be the closer and ran with it. By accepting this role he may have pitched less innings each year, but has affected the outcome of so many more games. Brad leads by example and is someone everyone looks to when the going gets tough.

Also, Brad is self-starter and has the ability to make his teammates around him better. He has the passion to continually improve his game each day and it has shown -- as there is no one else I (or any of his teammates) would want on the mound with the game on the line --- PERIOD.
