University of Oklahoma
I had an instant connection with the coaches and fell in love with the family oriented atmosphere.
I’ve heard to many stories about my Papa playing Major League Baseball in Guam. He was a shortstop with ridiculous range and fluid motion. Not to mention a phenomenal bat and lots of speed. He played with passion and leadership and that’s what I strive to be.
My parents traveled and played a lot of amateur adult slow pitch softball when I was a baby through the age of 7, when I joined travel softball. I saw pics of when I was a toddler and I would sit in my stroller in the dugout while they were on the field. My cousin Jaylene played softball for San Diego State University.
The person who plays every game for their team and to represent the Polynesian culture.
I’ve been coached by Coach Dave and Coach Mark, along with Coach Brian who has somewhat retired from the game, since I started travel ball at the age of 7. Coach Dave also coached me in high school for 2 years.
