Personal Statement

     My name is Abbie Buckner and I have always dreamed about playing softball in college. Every since I was a young girl my dad and I would go watch high school softball. I am from the Gibbs community and our high school program is all about tradition and pride. We have been District Champions 37 out of 39 years, Regional Champions 26  times, State Runner-Up 3 times and State Champions 10 times. I knew at an early age that I wanted to play for Coach Mitchell and I finally got the chance in middle school. I am a utility player and my 7th grade year she asked me to pitch and told me she needed me for my 9th-12th grade years. While I had never had lessons she worked with me my off season and my 8th grade year I pitched a 9-1 season and got 2nd place in the county tournament. I’m very passionate when it comes to learning new positions and I love when I achieve my goals. As much as I love sports my academics are just as important. I take a great deal of pride in everything I do and while I have had some serious set backs it’s making me mentally, emotionally and physically stronger everyday. I tore my ACL in the fall of my 8th grade year and I look at everything from a different prospective. While I’ve been recovering it’s allowed me to travel to watch several college and high school games. I’ve also traveled to tournaments with my club team. My goals for the next four years are to prepare myself for college ball. One thing that I love about softball is that it’s a great platform and it creates leadership and work ethic. My goal in college is to use softball as a platform to educate athletes on diabetes and bring awareness to young people.
