How did you get your start in softball and how did you get to the upper level?
I was playing locally with a D team from DE called Paint Dr, when my buddy Erik Curry picked me up to play with a team out of VA called Burch Propane with guys like Lee Bowls etc. and it went from there.

What was the most surprising difference between Conference play and non-Conference play when you made the jump?
I think the pitching and the level of intelligence from the players. Knowing how the game goes and how to set up a defense etc.

I think the run we made 2 years ago with La Famigilia finishing 3rd at A worlds, then 5th at the AA world and then placing top 10 in the Major as an A team.

What advice can you give a young player trying to break into the upper level?
Practice Practice Practice. Learn the game, put the time and work in on the off season. Set goals.
