Favorite Sports Quote:   

I've failed over and over and over again in my life.  And that is why I succeed."

Michael Jordan

     I feel like I would be a good Captain because I know the game and I am not tied to many school activities that would interfere with practices.  I play fair and don't get upset if there is a wrong call.  And I know if someone does something that I didn't get right the first time I don't get jealous.  It's better to support the people around you to progress further into the skill/play.  These are the reasons I think I would make a good Captain.

Favorite Sports Quote:   

"You can always tell who the strongest players are.

they are the ones building each other up

instead of tearing each other down."

     This quote reminds me alot of us, the Nighthawks!  Because we are a team, we encourage, help others, build each other up!  That's what makes us a special team.  

     To be a leader!  To help others!  Inspire others!  To make mistakes and learn from them!  To become a better player and a better person!  I think I would make a great team Captain because I love Softball!  I love to help people, inspire people.  I'm a positive person, a positive role model.  I'm not just this way in softball.  I'm this way both on and off the field.  I am a responsible person.  I want to help encourage people to be their best.  I respect my teammates and my coaches.  To support my team, motivate my teammates.  And I will always enforce positive thinking.

Favorite Sports Quote:   

"If it were easy,

they'd call it baseball."

     I think I would be a good Captain because I have been on the team for a while, and I know most of the girls pretty well.  I try to be at practice, and try to make it a fun environment.  I love playing softball, and I hope you do, too.

     I care about all the girls and coaches, and I hope everyone feels welcome and happy playing for this team.  I also hope everyone is staying well right now.

Favorite Sports Quote:   

"The moment you give up,

is the moment you let someone else win."

Kobe Bryant

     I think that I would make a good Captain because I give good feedback to my teammates for what they could work on.  I also think that I could be a good Captain because whenever I get frustrated I get upset in my head but not to my teammates.  I am also positive when I make an error but also to my teammates that make an error as well.  

     Lastly, I think I would be a good Captain because I am always here for any of my teammates when they need it, especially for coach.
