I have already started planning my future career. In the process of creating my plan, I have realized that college is a very important necessity for me to be successful in my chosen career path. I have learned that it is important to prepare for success. Hard work, discipline, and proper preparation are the keys I use to achieve my goals, whether it be academic or athletic. Pitching has brought me many opportunities, such as meeting new people, traveling to new places, and giving me the confidence and leadership to become the best person I can be. Softball is my passion, second only to my career goal. I know that pitching is a lot of individual time and effort, but that is the price a pitcher has to pay to support the team. I am looking forward to taking on the challenges of a college pitcher.
