My name is Rayah Davis and I am a hard working, committed softball player. Ever since I made my first travel team, I knew that I wanted to play at a college level due to how challenging and competitive it was. My goals are to graduate high school and achieve the highest academics that I can, get accepted into a great college, and to also play softball at that college.
I have came a long way with softball but I have much further to go. I will not stop until my goals are reached. On the field, I'm always the first person to arrive and the last person to leave. I have not been appointed team captain of my teams but I take and have taken the leadership role to inspire, encourage and motivate my team to be the best version of themselves on and off the field. I respect my team and my coaches. I always make sure to pick up my teammates when they are having a bad day and cheer them on when they are having a good one. I make sure that our team has a bond on and off the field and that we always succeed together. As for myself, I continue to work on my skills. I run a 2.6 from home to first and I was number 1 in my high school BVAL league with the most stolen bases. I don't strive for tangible awards, I strive to give 100% percent effort in everything that I do, including games, workouts, practices and most importantly, academics.
Having a great character can take you far but I feel that academics can take you even farther. Over the past 2 and a half years, I began to realize exactly how important academics are. I've always loved a challenge, so I've challenged myself to take honors classes. Then my senior year, I will be taking 2 A.P. classes.
My parents have been my greatest cheerleaders and supporters throughout my academic and softball career. They support me and everything that I do. I am so happy that my journey stated at t-ball or else I wouldn't be in the position I am now.
