Achieving Your Dreams – From an All-American

October 27, 2015

 

I was a four sport athlete in school - volleyball, basketball, track, and softball. In high school, I started to narrow my focus so by my senior year I had narrowed it down to volleyball and softball. My senior year is when club ball started to be "the thing to do," so I decided to play. (I just needed to be competing all the time.)

 

I was fortunate enough to have to choose between softball and volleyball when being recruited. I chose volleyball and have never looked back. I wasn't the top recruit in our freshman class at Colorado State, in fact I'd say I was towards the bottom. But because of that, I wanted to work extra hard to change the thinking of my coaches.

 

I played some my freshman year and started to get a glimpse of who I wanted to become. I had an All-American/Olympian to learn from, and so I completely dedicated myself to the sport. I spent summers and off-seasons to get in the best shape of my life and to study the game. As a team we were already successful, but I wanted more. I knew that if I could get better and be an example of the "extra mile" I was willing to go for my team, then maybe they would, too.

 

And they did. And we did.

 

We ultimately did extremely well, ranking as high as #5 in the country. But it wasn't done without A LOT of extra work, in-season and out. I feel like once I had that dream, I was willing to do whatever it took. Even if it didn't turn out as I had wanted, I would know how it felt to work as hard as I possibly could, doing whatever it took. Because in the end, I could finish my college career knowing I couldn't have given more of myself for not only my personal goals and dreams, but for my team.
