On the field I have demonstrated leadership by pumping everybody up before games. Also when people are down on themselves I am usually able to help boost their confidence back up because I know they would do the same for me. At practices I like to have a positive attitude, but also be serious when it is needed to set a good example for the younger players. Off the field I demonstrate leadership by getting good grades in school. I also try to cheer up people when they are not themselves or if somebody is excluded I like to try and include them. Lastly I show leadership off the field by working to improve my weaknesses in a sport too help out my team on the field.
One way I pursue healthy athletic performance as a student-athlete is by balancing my time wisely to complete school work and have time to practice. I tend to do all of my school work before my practice or after depending on the time so I am not cramming it in late at night. This way I will be able to get enough rest. Another way is after I am done pitching I ice my arm to prevent soreness, and I also stretch before games to prevent pulled muscles. Also when I have gotten injured I follow proper rehabilitation workouts to get me back in practice and games as soon as possible. Lastly I stay hydrated during games to keep me energized and ready to play.
One effort I have made to serve my community is help out with a little girls softball organization. The girls ranged from about 5 to 8 years old. I would help with drills then help coach them during games. I did this during the summer of 2013. These efforts are important to me because it allowed me to share my love for a sport with younger girls and help inspire and teach them to learn to love the game of softball. Another thing I have done to serve my community is feed homeless people at a church on Thanksgiving. It really made me realize how lucky I am to have a roof over my head and food on my plate everyday. This was important to me because I was able to help feed people who don't have families or anyone to spend thanksgiving with.
