My hero is my pitching instructor Kelsey Spangler. She started her study at UNCC studying Exercise Science. She is going to Belmont Abbey College to be a physical therapist and has had some of the highest grades in her class. She is always talking about her school and the awards she gets.. Listening to her talk about how good she is doing at school makes me want to do good at school and get in on a scholarship just like she did.
She is also very good at sports. She has played softball since she was about 8 years old. She has been pitching since she was 9. She has been to 4 Little League World Series and was starting varsity pitcher for South Iredell High School. She started teaching me about 3 years ago. She has taught me how to think better and be better when I am pitching and anytime I am going through something. She shows me every week what it looks like to work hard and that anything is possible if I try.
She takes time over the weekend to teach me pitching, but I feel like it is more than that. She shows me every week that I am becoming a better person from watching her and wanting to be just like her.
