My love for softball started at a very young age, which also jump started my love for sports in general. My parents have always been supportive of my desire to play sports as they both competed and my dad played baseball at a local junior college. When I was 8 years old my mom took me to my first pitching camp in Casey, IL with Denny Throneburg which started my journey of hard work, determination, sacrifice, and drive to become a pitcher my team could count on each game I enter the circle.
I look forward to the challenges I face as a pitcher. My catcher is an important extension of me and She along with the rest of my team give me strength, confidence, and focus to be the best teammate and player I can be for them. Being part of teams that have won and lost have taught me humility, the importance of that bond a team has, and how to be a leader. I am always working to grow my game, perfecting pitches w/ movement and speed, consistently having quality at bats, and working to handle pressure in a way that I can stay positive/encouraging to my teammates.
I have been taught to work just as hard in the classroom as I do on the field. I would like to become a physical therapist to help athletes get back to doing what they love, just as I worked through a back injury in Jr. High. In addition to travel & high school softball I am also involved in my church, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Future Farmers of America, and I play Varsity Volleyball. I believe I have, and continue to, developed time management skills, leadership qualities, and a team-first focus that will help me make a difference on a college team. I am looking for a school that can help me accomplish my goal to become a physical therapist and continue to play a game that I love and look forward to meeting you and being considered for your program.
