Coach Bobby Engle:

“McPherson is one of those guys that should be going Division-I after next year. He does have that breakaway speed. He’s slippery. He hits the crease and he’s gone and has really good hips.”

McPherson an unknown:

“We don’t get a lot of exposure like central Arkansas and Northwest Arkansas does.We don’t have anyone broadcasting our games.”
