Since the first time I put on my softball glove I have loved the game. Through the early days, school ball and multiple travel teams my love for the game has increased. I am now a sophomore and have begun to think about my future. Playing college softball is now coming closer to my reality. As I start thinking about the best college for me the idea of playing softball is always on my mind. My dad played college football and I can tell he is still proud of his athletic achievements. He reminds me that many young adults can play sports at the high school level but there is only a limited number of athletes who can play at the college level. I want to be one of the those athletes! On the other hand, my mom always stressed the importance of academics. The bar was set very high when it came to academic achievement. Because of my mother I have worked very hard academically. I currently take honor and AP classes. My G.P.A. is 4.45/4.0! Between my athletic ability and my academic success I believe I am great future college player!
