Q: How long have you been playing softball?
A: I have been playing since I was four.
Q: Who got you started playing softball?
A: My dad got me started playing.
Q: How do you think playing on a traveling team has affected your game?

Q: What do you like most about softball?
A: The competitiveness, we are going at each other every day and I enjoy that aspect.
Q: Who is your role model or who do you look up to in softball?
A: My parents, because they have always been there for me and they support me in everything that I do.
Q: What is your favorite Auburn tradition?
A: The fight song. I really love it. I also like running out in the beginning of the game when the starting line up is announced.
Q: How do you deal with the pressures of being a pitcher?
A: I try to relax and focus and go out there with the attitude that no one can hit off of me.
Q: What was it like to see your picture in Sports Illustrated under the "Top Recruits for 2003?"
A: It was awesome. I never dreamed that I would see my face in a top magazine, but I hope to see it there again someday.
