Softball has been a passion to me since I was four years old. Starting on varsity as a freshman really opened my eyes and made me think about the possibilities of where I could go from there. We made it to the fourth round of state playoffs and were pretty upset when we lost because we knew what we were capable of. Each game we played made me realize how much I love the game. And when we lost that fourth game, it made me realize how much more I want it for next year, and to leave every piece of heart and fight on the field from then on. I know what I need to do to and how to prepare to play at a college level, and I am certainly willing to do so.
Personally I know what it's like to be set back because it has happened twice. First when I was 11, I broke my tibia sliding into home, then when I was 14 I dislocated my shoulder twice in the same at bat swinging at an inside pitch. I was devastated because off the fact that I knew I couldn’t play until it was better. I went through 2 surgeries for my foot and weeks of therapy for my shoulder, all that time off made me want to be on the field 24/7 and even work to take it to the next level. Academically I have very high standards, to stay above a 4.0 GPA and strive to go above and beyond. I really hope there’s and school for me that offers all my academic needs.
The main thing that coaches and players notice about me is my speed. My speed helps me with coverage in the outfield, and also on the bases. I play three sports and have had to be speaking captain for two of them so I know what it’s like to be a leader. I love being a part of teams that can help me reach my goals and I can help them as well. I hate to see a player down because it effects the whole team. I believe I have what it takes to be a leader, and the talent to be a part of your team. I love the game and I’m willing to do whatever it takes.
