Go Hard, or Go Home

             Go Hard, or Go Home mean make the best of every situation, and always play your hardest like its the last game you last game you ever play. If you leave everything on the field and lose at least you tried and you don't go threw life thinking what if I only did...

              Right now, I am trying to get a softball scholarship to a Division 1 school. When I am working out/ practice/ when I am on the field I always think Go Hard, or Go Home because someone someplace else is better than me and is still working harder. That one person that is working harder than me is going to get a scholarship, that I won't get. Scholarships are very limited for pitchers and each team can only give out 2-4 every four years or so. So I need to work harder than everyone, other wise I am not going anywhere in life.

My Role Model

               My role model would have to be Sarah Nevins, because shes a great person. Sarah Nevins is a Sr. at the University of South Florida. She's the started pitcher for both USF and Team USA. Sarah and I both go to the same pitching coach,Coach Trent Rubley. Not only is Sarah a pitcher like me but she is also very smart and kind. Nevins is a natural born leader.

Just like Sarah Nevins, Dallas Escopedo is also one of my role models. Dallas is a Sr. at Arizona State University. She is a really cool person. Dallas is a pitcher at ASU. The first time i saw her pitch at the college world series last year, my mouth just dropped she came over to me and started to talk to me she was really nice and we talked about pitching.

It's hard for me to pick one role model especially when all of the girls are so kind and such good athletes. My final role model is Monica Abbott. Monica is a pitcher for the Chicago Bandits. She is just an all around cool person, and really sweet. Abbott went to the University of Tennessee. The first time I saw her pitch was in the 2008 oplymipics the year they won. I think ever since then I have wanted to be like her.

Professional Softball Player

        The experiences you have in college prepares you for the life after you graduate After winning the College World Series, Jennie Finch realizes that her four year in college at the University of Arizona she learned to be a "better player and better person", which prepared her and helped her become the athlete she is today.  Not only is Jennie Finch an amazing athlete but she is also an amazing person. Being a professional athlete there are a lot of people looking at you at all times, and if you make one wrong move everyone will know. But not only are other coaches looking at you, but also young children that look up to you. You wouldn't want to make a wrong move and have the little kids want to do that because you did it. So respecting coaches and respecting others is a big part of being an athlete
