It is your National Director of Hitting for Softball, Jordan Roberts!
I am so excited to share a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in the small town of Live Oak, Florida and I was graciously given the opportunity to play at the University of Florida. Being the first in my family to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree from one of the best programs in the country has been something I take immense pride in. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 my last season at UF was cancelled, and I chose not to return for my 5th year. It was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made, but I am thankful for what that decision led me to. I left with a perfect fielding percentage as their catcher and attended the Women’s College World Series three consecutive years. I was able to come home with a couple of Regular Season and Conference tournament championships under my belt.
This past September I played my rookie season as a professional softball player for Athletes Unlimited. I got to play in Chicago for 6 weeks and it was a dream come true. It made all the hardships that have came from this pandemic so worth it. I am currently in my off season coaching and training for my next season with AU.
The last four years I have found that my passion for just playing the game has grown into something more. Giving back to my small community is my life’s work and I have been looking for the next best thing for my local softball players. I believe training and having the opportunity to get better with some of the best quality instruction should be accessible to everyone in order for the game of softball to continue growing. I truly believe Area Scouts will be the next best thing for athletes all over the world.
My hope is to inspire girls from all over the country to continue following their dreams. I am beyond excited to be able to make those dreams attainable for all of them and I can’t wait to see the impact that this platform will have on so many athletes.
2021 for me is all about saying yes to the things that will help us all level up and no to the things that are weighing us down and keeping us from reaching our goals! Come say yes to this amazing opportunity and let’s get better together!
All the best!
