The Westword (TW): How long have you been playing softball?

TW: Outside of school, do you play on any other softball teams?
OB: I did play on the Westhill coaches travel team during the summer and I have been playing on travel teams since I started softball, but this year I decided to take a break and have a free summer. One of my travel teams made it to the World Series in Florida.
TW: Do you have any routines or pre-game rituals?
OB: My dad and I have had a handshake since I was younger so I always do our handshake before I go out on the field. We also have a tribal dance that we do before every game where we make a beat and dance.
TW: What is your proudest athletic achievement?

TW: What motivates you to continue playing softball?
OB: The feeling of winning and enjoying it with others, also learning how to put in effort and gain success full results.
TW: What do you like and dislike about playing softball?
OB: My favorite thing is getting into shape and working on the mechanics so you know what you are doing on the feild. My least favorite thing is probably running.
TW: Do you play or take interest in any other sport?
OB: I do like playing volleyball but I wanted to focus more on one sport this season.
TW: What do you think are your strengths in softball?
OB: I would say being able to play a lot of positions and being versatile. I am also good with hitting and not getting stressed in the box.
TW: What do you think you need to improve on?
OB: Adjusting to shortstop since I have been playing second for two years. I also want to work on my mental game.
