Episode 153: Zebulon Vermillion
The guy they call Zeb might be the most interesting man in the world. Besides a unique name, the fifth-year senior pitcher speaks parts of multiple languages, will compete with you in ping pong or bowling and played basketball with multiple guys who made it to the NBA. Don’t expect to see Vermillion on the basketball court, though. He has emerged as a standout reliever for the nationally competitive Razorbacks. It’s a role that’s been built through hard work and an incredible culture that permeates every aspect of the program. And while Vermillion’s Razorback career didn’t get off to the best of starts, he’s turned into one of the most consistent—and confident—performers for Dave Van Horn’s team. With that kind of confidence, it’s easy to see why Vermillion has found success this season and is destined to leave an impact on Razorback baseball.
