IF/OF. I played outfield last year but I will play where ever I am needed to benefit the team.

Who is the best softball player you have ever seen play?
There are a lot of good ball players at the upper level.  I'm not sure if I could name one player specifically.

Why do you like the game of softball?
The game of softball gives me an oppurtunity to compete and to build friendships.

Who is the best up and coming player in softball and why?
Once again there are too many good players in the game. There is a lot of young talent in the conference.

What is your nickname in softball and how did you get it?
The newest nickname I got was Jackie "Sauce". My teammate B-Lo started it at the dual and it stuck. However, with the last name "Corn" its hard not to get new nicknames.

What is your height and weight?
6'0  220

Where do you call home?
Hendersonville, NC

What's your favorite way to spend an off weekend?
When I have an off weekend I enjoy spending it with my wife. I also enjoy hunting and fishing during the off season. Anything relaxing is a good off weekend.

What do you do for a living?
I am a Physical Education Teacher.  I also coach football and baseball.

Did you play sports in High School / College / Pro?
I played 4 years of baseball and 3 years of football in high school. I also played 4 years of college baseball.

How did you get your start in softball and how did you get to the upper level?
I started playing church league softball with my dad once I finished my last year of college baseball. After playing a spring season of church league I started playing in some E rec tournaments. I started to really enjoy the game and its competition so I joined a D level team for a year. I had a strong season and was approached Greg Millsaps and Donnie Munsford who gave me the chance to play with Adiktiv Dynasty. I played with those guys for half of a season and then started playing with Taylormade in 2013.

What was the most surprising difference between Conference play and non-Conference play when you made the jump?
I believe conference hitters are more consistent. They are able to hit the ball to all parts of the field and hit homeruns when needed.

What would you say is your career highlight to this point? Maybe one play or game that sticks out to you in particular?
My career highlight so far would be hitting in the Major homerun derby at Disney. It was an awesome experince to be able to represent Taylormade and Mizuno.

In your career was there a single person (player/manager/coach) who had the most significant impact on your approach to the game? Why?
My dad has always been my #1 fan and has helped me with the game since I was a young kid. He pushes me harder than anyone and has made me the competitive player I am today.

What type of batting grip do you use and what ounce bat?
I drop my pinky off the knob with a two finger overlap. I use a 26 or 27 ounce end load.

What do you do in the offseason to prepare for the next softball season?
I like to lift weights and take a lot of batting practice.

My favorite team is the Atlanta Braves

What would be your "at bat" music selection?
Mark Morrison. "Return of the Mack."

What is your favorite non-World tournament and why?
The Smoky. Great atomsphere and its all you can hit.

What is the best softball field/complex you have played at and why?
Disney Wide World of Sports. The fields are awesome!

Anywhere. I love food.
