I am a player who comes from a family with strong core family values. I became interested in softball because I grew up in a family who always liked playing ball. I have learned how to be a leader, to be coachable, and to always put in the work to make myself as great as I can be as a softball player. My academic goals for high school is to make honor roll, and to keep getting better as a student- athlete. And my academic goal in college is to find an area of study that I love that could lead me into my future career. I have overcome many obstacles in past years playing. I have always played on teams where there was very good competition. That has pushed me to always work hard to become the best player I can be to achieve the best results. In this way, I feel ready to work hard to maximize my talents at the next level. As a softball player, I throw a variety of pitches to keep hitters off balance. I also have worked extremely hard to improve as a hitter and currently have an exit velocity of 67 MPH as an 8th grader.
