    photo A right-hander who was named the Georgia State class AA Player of the Year in 2007 ... A strike thrower with an outstanding breaking ball ... Had a very good fall and has a chance to be a really good pitcher ... Has great command of the strike zone with three pitches ... Could possibly have command of a fourth pitch, which is way ahead of schedule for a freshman ... Continues to get better and with strength, could factor into some mid-week games.

    High School: Pitched Coach Dylan Deal's Holy Innocents' Episcopal School team to the Georgia class AA state championship in 2007, earning state Player of the Year honors from the Georgia Dugout Club, a division of the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association ... Was an All-Area honorable mention after each of his four seasons, and as a senior, went 9-2 with two saves, a 3.11 ERA and 103 strikeouts in 72 innings pitched ... Held his opponents to a .179 batting average, and his season highlight came in the state semifinal when he tossed a perfect game ... For his four-year career, accumulated a 3.01 ERA and 303 strikeouts in 225.2 innings ... Also lettered for three seasons as a forward/guard in basketball, and was involved with Young Life and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

    Personal: Benjamin Francis Cornwell ... Born 11/2/88 in Atlanta, GA ... Son of Frank and Libby Cornwell ... Enrolled in business.
