My name is Avery. I am a 16 year old high school junior, currently living in Montana, but most of my upbringing was spent in Texas.
I am a strong team candidate because I have a sense of pride in everything I do and a willingness to share what I know. I am a quiet leader, but make a big impact on each team that I belong to. My teammates know and trust that I will always lead them with my strong softball IQ and hard work no matter the position I am playing. I love being part of a team, working together to achieve goals, building on each other and what a team represents.
I am a strong academic achiever that makes school, softball, and community my priorities. I made the Varsity softball team freshman and sophomore years and in my coursework carry AP and Honors classes and currently have a 4.33 weighted GPA. Living in Texas gave me the opportunity to train, play year round and become a student of the game. It taught me to be committed to my training, be coachable in my personal play, and in-turn be a great team player. Now living in Montana, I volunteer coach middle school softball, continue to play travel ball in the summer, train year round, attend softball camps, weight lift, agility train, and kickbox.
I also believe in helping my community and have always been part of a group that gives back: Elementary school- Student Council, Middle school- NJHS and now in High school I am in Key Club and was recently selected to be apart of NSHSS and am working towards induction into NHS my senior year. Helping others means so much to me and I always hope it makes a difference for those we spend time with at food banks, donating food/clothing to shelters, park clean-ups, being a liaison for a member of an underprivileged baseball team and mentoring young softball players.
My goal is to play softball competitively in college, while earning my degree in sports management/business and become a collegiate or high school athletic director. I have always had a love for sports and now coaching. When I was four I would watch the Packers games and yell the plays to my Dad while he went to make us snacks and from then on the love for sports grew. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me. I hope I get the chance to meet you!
