“I chose FSU because I love the family-based atmosphere and feeling that you never meet a stranger. I also chose FSU because the entire coaching staff and everyone involved values me beyond softball and will prepare me to succeed in the future after softball. Another plus is that both of my parents attended FSU, so that makes me Nole-blooded.”
