Background Info: Coddington is a four-year starter and the lone senior for a Serra team that is consistently a WPIAL Class A title contender. The Eagles, who went 18-3 and reached the semifinals last season, were 0-2 prior to Monday's game against Springdale. Since 2007, the Eagles have won six section titles, two WPIAL championships and a PIAA championship.

Coddington has played a big role on the last couple of teams. As a junior, he batted .500 and was an all-Section 2 pick. He had a solid sophomore season, which followed a freshman season in which he had a multitude of clutch hits in the postseason to help Serra win WPIAL and PIAA titles.
