I suppose everyone was in a sophomore slump because that year we were mediocre, going 5-5, but I was the only sophomore to play and I even picked up a fumble and ran it in for a 43 yard touchdown, it was our best game if the year. Junior year rolls around and I am now starting both ways, still playing offensive and defensive line. We have a pretty stout team and we start off the year 3-0, but Mingo gave us some problems. We bounced back and won our last six games to go 9-1. We went into the playoffs ranked 4th in AA so we hosted 13th seeded Weir.
As a three year letterwinner and playing the shortstop position, I have faced many challenges. I have played softball with my older sister for many years and June 7, 2013 was one of the most heartbreaking days of my life. My sister Ashlynn was the starting shortstop player for our team. She was a great player with a positive attitude and always gave her best effort. Ashlynn was a role model to me and to other younger players on and off the field.
They throw some ball and they start to talk with their coach and see what the plan for the upcoming practice will be. Today they are going to go over plays for different scenarios that may play out in the game. They do this for about 3 to 4 hours until they start practice drills. Six days a week, they spend every day like this, for 10 to 12 hours a day, each day, trying to overcome the exhaustion of the day before. Still, for all that work that they put into baseball, sixty to seventy hours a week, you would think that all of this would pay off a livable wage for a 19 or 20-year-old who has to pay for the household, food, and potential families.

It was just too boring for me, I would play in the dugout spitting sunflower seeds at ants. During my freshman year I was that one kid that tried out for every team; wrestling, basketball, tennis and even the chess team. I was desperate to find something better than baseball. It wasn’t until my sophomore year that I was introduced to cross country and immediately knew that was what I loved. I dreaded going to baseball practice but that’s when my dad was the happiest.
Some of the major highlights from this decade include, in 1950, “female tennis wonder Althea Gibson became the first black player to participate in the U.S. National Championships and was the first black woman to win the tennis Grand Slam.” (Fisk, Judy). “Also, in college football, the Oklahoma Sooners won three national championships over the course of the decade. The team was undefeated from 1953 to November 1957.” (Fisk, Judy). “In 1958, baseball player, Jackie Jensen peaked as a major-leaguer, winning the American League MVP.

I first played Tee Ball, like I said before, then moved up levels as my age got older. It starts at 6u-18u then after high school there options of division one, which I one day hope to play! At first I was not very good at softball. I could barley throw or hit very far and most definitely could not pitch. The first time I ever pitched was 8u and I was the biggest, tallest, and one of the most strongest players so my
This was a single elimination tournament, so once you lost you went home. We were the number one seed in our pool, so we got a one game break. Our next game wasn’t until 3:00 p.m. This game was gonna be against either Horseshoe Bend or Woodland, whoever won between them two. I knew some people from Horseshoe Bend, so this was a game I actually sat down and watched.
I got my will to compete from my parents and my grandpa. When I started softball at age 6, my dad was the coach. Ever since then, my dad has coached me and pushed me to be the best. One quote my grandpa always told me was, “If you’re not first, you’re last.” I’ve always believed this quote and strived to be the best. My family is so competitive that when we play corn hole, the rules are really strict.
