How old were you when you started playing softball? What do you love about softball?
I started playing my first year of 12U. I loved softball because you are playing for something bigger than yourself you play for your team. I also love softball because it teaches you without the hard work you put in it's very hard to reach success.
What schools did you visit?
Texas, LSU, FSU, OU, UTA, and Texas A&M (Official)
When did you verbally commit to Texas A&M? Why Texas A&M?
I committed my freshman year, A&M has always felt like home being that I grew up in College Station. I also loved the community a&m has after you graduate a&m is such a special place and it’s amazing how the community comes together and has so much school spirit I also love the tradition!
What were your plans for signing day?
Celebrating with friends and family.
What excites you most when you think about college?
Getting to play against some of the greatest players! Also learning and growing as a player!
What's one thing you're going to take from home and bring to college?
Definitely my work ethic. My dad always would tell me cream rises to the top which basically means to me every day won't be your best day but as long as you are putting in your work it won’t go unnoticed.
What do you think your walk-up song will be?
Most likely something by Beyoncé!
