What advice would you give to a younger player about the sport you are involved in that would help them improve? Don’t ever let anyone take away your love for the game. Softball is on a time frame, and it is important to use that time to the fullest.
What is your background and experience in the sport you participate in? Growing up I played on a select team called the Killer Beez. We won two state ASA championships, and one national ASA championship. I later went on to play for the Bomber’s organization. At Flour Bluff, I was a four-year varsity player and received all-district first team three of my four years and MVP of the district my junior year.
