WHAT HE’S DONE:
Burnett hit the go-ahead home run in Swarthmore’s dramatic victory over Pitt-Bradford at Seton Catholic on Friday.

FAVORITE CAREER MOMENT:
“The Miracle at Seton Catholic. It was just an awesome time for the team. We got great pitching, and every position player got in the game and helped the team win in some way. No one that went to the batters box was willing to give up.”

WHAT HE WANTS TO DO:
“We want to win the Centennial Conference Championship. That is our first and only goal right now.”

WHAT HE LIKES TO HIT:
“I’m really strange in that I really like hitting curveballs. I don’t know where it came from, but it probably has something to do with my dad throwing them to me in the front yard.”
