Personal Statement

My name is Aiden and I am a Freshman at Fort Defiance High School.  I was a starter as an 8th grader on the FDHS JV Softball Team and we were undefeated in district play.  As a Freshman, I made the FDHS varsity team.  I also play travel for VA Glory Long (16U) and have played travel ball since I was 8 years old.  My primary position is pitcher, but I am also a utility player.  My dream has been to play college softball since I was old enough to watch college softball on tv. I am very intense about softball and my biggest advantage over my peers is that I know the game and strategies very well. I want to go to college to study kinesiology or sports medicine so I can have a career in physical therapy, with a focus on training athletes.
