Accomplishments at DSU?

"I made some great memories at DSU. I like to teach by example and one of my favorite memories is seeing a little girl's Little League card with her favorite player as me. I may not have played a lot, but that didn't mean I wasn't always working hard at practice. I always cheered on my teammates and helped anyway I could; even of that meant being a bullpen catcher for the pitchers to warm up!"

Tell us about some of your favorite moments at DSU.

"Favorite memories were anytime that I was with my teammates. They became my life long friends. We all get together every now and then and just catch up and reminisce about the good ol days! Being a D1 athlete and a full-time student has set me up for success in the real world. DSU has helped me manage my time and playing softball has helped me always work hard in the professional field."
