What’s your fave sport? Softball
How many years have you been playing your fave sport?
What is your fave sporty moment or memory?
Making my high schools varsity team my freshman year.
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned from playing your sport?
That sometimes it’s not how good you are its how bad you and your teammates want it.
What lessons have you learned about work ethic from your sport?
That you only become good if you work hard. You’re not going to get any better by just sitting around.
What have you learned about teamwork?
That everyone on your team has to want to be a team you can’t just have some people wanting to be a team and other people not wanting to be a team, because it won’t work if its like that.
How do you balance school and sports?
It’s definitely hard, but I have a weekly scheduler that my dad and I sit down with at the beginning of each week and plan out the days I have work, the days I have softball practice/pitching lessons and the day I have to go to the gym. So keeping a schedule has definitely helped me a lot, so I’m able to see it visually.
