I have found a new sense of pride playing here. It feels great to put in all the hard work with your team who is striving for one common goal.

I like to drink a protein shake before each game with a green straw. The green straw symbolizes good luck to me.

First softball memory?
Having my t-ball coach tell me he would be watching me play softball on TV someday

I am a huge fan of Drew Brees! He is all about his team, family, hard work and doing the right thing. Not to mention he is pretty cute!

Game/reality show you would like to be on?
