Ada —

“He had a great locker room presence,” Rosato said. “He set a great example for all of his teammates, but more importantly for the younger players. He was a mature student-athlete who his teammates could look to for advice and support. 

“Chris also excelled in the classroom,” Rosato said. “The main focus in our program is academic achievement. Chris was a special student-athlete who achieved high marks as a business/finance major. That is what I am most admired about Chris when I think of him as a student-athlete. He understood that academic success directly correlates to success on the ballfield.

“He was a shining example of the core elements of the ECU baseball program. I pray that his soul receives the light he deserves,” Rosato said.
