The Pride of the Huskies

The NIU baseball program has had many a great leaders in the dugout. Young men that have led vocally, through character and with their performance on the field. But it's not every season you have a young man that brings all three to the diamond every game at Ralph McKinzie Field. The Huskies have one in 2015. His name is Gavin.
