Thank you for taking the time to open my email. My name is Taryn Massey and I am currently in the 9th grade(2024) at Person High School in Roxboro, NC. I would like to pursue a career in the military as an intelligence officer, and I am targeting class selection, where possible, to achieve this goal. I have played in multiple showcase tournaments with a wide variety of college coaches on the field, but I feel it is most important to choose a school based on career goals. To play softball would be that much better. I have played team sports since I was 5 years old and I stay active between softball (school and travel), volleyball (school and club), and enjoy extra time in the gym and cages. I have attended two annual, overnight summer camps at Florida State University, as well as multiple local camps and clinics. I also have regular hitting lessons in Durham, NC at Softball Rebellion with instructor and former MLB outfielder Garrett Gordon, and also was fortunate to work with former Valparaiso pitcher, Kyle Wormington on throwing fundamentals. I also work with William Bradley Sports Performance in Greensboro, NC for speed and agility training. My goal is to become a 5-tool player and the best teammate on and off the field. I was the starting short stop for my travel team and was batting over .400 for the 2020 summer season. I work hard on and off the field whether it’s practice, school, or my other sports and hobbies.
