I started playing softball when I was very young. I went from town ball to trying out for a 10U team at 8 years old, my parents and my grandfather thought I had great athletic ability. I worked hard and became one of the starting pitchers by the end of that season. I know my strenghts and know that I have worked really hard to achieve the things I have. I am still the starting pitcher on that team 9 years later. I'm looking foward to the challanges and lessons ahead of me at the collegiate level.
I want to play college softball because not only do I love the sport, but it also gives me an opportunity to complete my schooling potentially at a much lower cost than if I did not play in college. My coaches would probably describe me as hard-working and determined because I don't miss practice, and when I'm there I am focused. I want to play for a coach that pushes me to be my best, even when they know I'm struggling, because that is the coaching I'm used to. I want to play for a program that supports and helps me become a better player and a more responsible student. I want to take full advantage of all the opportunities that I have ahead of me. I want to work hard and continue to challenge myself. I am looking forward to the entire college experience.
