I started playing t-ball when I was 6 years old. I continued to play on boys baseball teams until a softball team opened up in my area as I entered the 6th grade. That same year I began playing junior high softball for my school. Besides school softball, I have played on summer league softball tournament teams for the last two years.
Softball has already offered me so many amazing opportunities and has connected me with fantastic coaches and players who I look up to as role models. My ultimate goal is to play softball at the college level. I am not overly concerned of the division level; I just want to be on the field with a team. I am willing to put whatever it takes into becoming the best softball player I’m capable of being. I fully understand that academics are the most essential element of college but I believe that being part of a team creates life long bonds, teamwork, and character. I believe that the only way to get better at something is by challenging and pushing yourself to the limit. Softball is not an easy game; it’s a game of precision, timing, and focus. This is why I find softball so appealing. On my current travel team (Tomah Stix, Coach Brad Plueger) I am looked upon as a leader because of these qualities.
