LOS ANGELES, Calif. -
As the 2013 season approaches, we here at LMULions.com would like to (re)introduce you to some of the baseball players who will be gracing Page Stadium's field this year. We have asked all the players a series of questions that range from why they chose LMU to what they would change their name to if they could. If you have any additional question that you'd like to see answered in the future, please feel free to email Tyler Geivett at email@example.com.
Today's question and answer session will feature sophomore David Edwards.
LMULions.com: Why did you choose LMU/What do you like most about LMU?
