Chuck Carlton sat down with Patterson to chat about the upcoming season. When asked about bouncing back, this is what Patterson had to say.
“We haven’t had a lot of them. So usually you’ve had young teams. You kind of turn up the knob. Kids forget what the standard is. Then all of a sudden you get back to the standard. This will be tougher than we did in 2014 for the simple reason ... we have to go on the road five times in the Big 12, tough places, plus play Arkansas on the road.”
Howard earned Big 12 Pitcher of the Week, while Skoug was tabbed as a Big 12 co-Player of the week.
Skoug and Howard are the sixth and seventh Horned Frogs to earn Big 12 accolades this season. Luken Baker was named the Player of the Week on March 6 and Janczak was selected the Pitcher of the Week on March 20 and April 4. Austen Wade was tabbed Player of the Week on March 27. Nick Lodolo was also honored as the Newcomer of the Week on April 4.
