In June of 2019, while fielding a groundball in the fourth inning of a tournament semi-finals game, I broke my index finger on my right hand. After finishing the game my dad drove me to the local hospital for x-rays, and while waiting for the results I realized just how much I loved the game of Softball.
As my father said to me, "You realize if your finger is broken, you are going to need to take a few weeks off to let it heal", all I could think about were the missed opportunities. Opportunities to help my team win, compete in a challenging travel schedule in front of college coaches, attend camps that had been payed for, but most importantly was the opportunity to play the game I love so much. In my mind missing these opportunities was not an option, simply, due to my love for the game and my desire to compete.... The finger was broken, and I was at a camp on Wednesday of the next week.
I am confident that I have the work ethic and ability to make any team better. Whether through my abilities on the field, or through the positive and optimistic attitude that I maintain, I know that I have attributes that will fit a program at the next level.
I love the game of softball, and I love to compete at the highest levels. I love being part of a team, and seeing, both large and small successes, not only for me, but for my teammates as well.
I can't wait to play softball collegiately, and I hope, that if you have read this far, that you will take the opportunity to determine if I could be a valuable part of your 2021 recruiting class!
