To the Coach Who Has Taught Me So Much

Thank you for teaching me so much about sports and life.

To the Coach Who Has Taught Me So Much

To the coach who has taught me so much,

I’m not so sure on which coach I’m talking to in this note but isn’t that the best part? Having so many great coaches that I don’t know who to thank more? Thank you for teaching me and taking the time to teach me the little things. You saw something in me and have now helped shape me into the player I am today. I couldn’t be more thankful for that and honestly couldn’t be more happy or grateful with my years with you. You didn’t just teach me about sports: you taught me about life and how to be a good person.
You taught me how to pass time when we were between games, and you taught me how to be spirited. You taught me how to hit the ball, and you taught me how to win. You taught me how to be quicker and get the ball there faster; you taught me how to get around tags on the bases and how to use my head while running too. You ignited a flame under me when we were down and then celebrated with us when that flame brought us an underdog win. You taught me how to lose and how to gather those losing thoughts and put them behind me and focus on the next game. You taught me how to focus on what was in front of me and not focus on the past.

You weren’t just my coach but you were a role model. You were a friend, and a great one at that. Someone I could talk to when I needed to and someone I could laugh with all the time.

I’m so lucky to have had my time with you and to have learned so much from you. Now, all I can hope is that I can do the same for a young athlete later in life, who is beginning her journey in the softball world.

So, thank you. Thank you for all you have taught me and just know that it is still with me and always will be.

Thank you with all my heart,

The athlete you impacted so greatly

Things To Do In Austin Over Spring Break

From swimming holes to SXSW, I got you covered.

Spi Abroad

With spring break quickly approaching in the next couple of weeks for high school and college students, most will be heading home to spend time with family and friends, while others will be going to explore new places such as the beach or someplace new to go. Austin has been ranked in numerous lists of best cities to visit and move to in the U.S, but having been born in raised in Austin, I can tell you everything there is to do.

With spring break around the corner, it's time to look at some ground rules. We are used to seeing insane partying in Panama City Beach and other Florida locations. We have an image in our minds of what the perfect Spring Break is as depicted in countless movies. We are ready to party hard. With that in mind ... we all wanna make it back alive to continue on our path of this wonderful journey for a college education.


1. Rally. Do you really want a hangover at 8 p.m.? I don't think so.

2. Buy souvenirs. I know you want a new tank top to wear every day. 

3. Spend most of your hours on the beach. You don't want to come back from Spring Break with no color. Being the pale friend is no fun.

4. Take a ton of pictures. These will help you remember the week for years to come.

5. Remember to have #NOREGRETS. What happens on Spring Break, stays on Spring Break. (The Vegas Rule.)


1. Don't do anything in public that you wouldn't want your mother seeing a picture of. Your friends will take pictures, I promise. You don't want this as wedding blackmail years later.

2. Don't get sick in public. If you don't feel good, go back to your hotel.

3. Don't leave any friends behind. They most likely won't be comfortable with the area. They may not even speak the native language.

4. Don't get caught. Take this whichever way you want.

5. Don't break the 'Vegas Rule'. I don't care if it is 10 years down the line.
