My name is Gabrielle Decker, and I'm a sophomore at Park Vista High School in Lake Worth, Florida. I've been playing softball since I was five years old, and started learning how to pitch when I was eight years old with my father in our backyard. I instantly caught a passion for pitching and was blessed with great talent. I played recreation softball at Lake Charleston fields in Lake Worth, Florida and started playing travel for the West Boynton Lady Bandits at age 10. At age 12, I started pitching lessons with Christine Stephens at Lake Charleston Fields in Lake Worth, Florida. During the summer going into eighth grade, I left the Lady Bandits and began playing for Wellington TNT. I now play with Gator Gold 16U out of Wellington, Florida along with many of my former TNT teammates and a few other new girls. I'm very vocal, and am a team player. I display leadership and determination. Hard work and practice can take you a long way. Throughout my years of playing softball, I've attended many softball camps such as the University of Florida Softball Camp and also watched the softball world series on television, dreaming that one day I could be on TV too, playing for my college.. The plans I have in store for myself in the near future is to aim for a Division I or Division II scholarship for softball at any university. Few subjects I'm interested in majoring in for a career are Photo Journalism, Marine Biology, Meteorology, and Criminal Justice. In addition, I'm excited for what is to come the next few years and plan to follow through with my dreams of pitching for a Division I or Division II school off of a softball scholarship.
