Q&A with Emmie Scott, RBHS senior second base

Q: How old were you when you started playing softball?

A: I was 8 years old.

Q: Was there anyone special in your life that helped you become a great player, and how?

A: My dad. He always took time to teach me the game and was really hard on me when I needed it.

Q: How do you get ready for a game?

A: I just try to stay focused for the game ahead, and music is a good way to get me ready.

Q: What do you like to do when you are not involved with softball?

A: Just be with my friends and family.

Q: What factors do you feel have influenced you the most to become the player and person you are today?

A: My parents have always taught me dedication to anything I’m involved in, and they always push me to be the best.

Q: Did you have any routines or superstitions before or in a game?

A: I have a certain bow I have to wear and certain songs I have to listen to.

Q: What is your favorite softball memory?

A: My trip to the state tournament my sophomore year.

Q: What softball/baseball player has influenced you most in the game? Why?

A: My cousin Judd Ward has influenced me the most because of his hard work and love for the game.

Q: What is the greatest obstacle you have had to overcome in your playing career?

A: Finishing my 10th grade year in the state tournament and beginning my junior year with a new team.

Q: What is life after being a softball player for you?

A: Moving on to find my career and starting the next chapter in my life.

Q: What are your thoughts on your season and career coming to an abrupt end?

A: It’s really unfair. We’ve all worked so hard to get to where we are now, and to not get to have our senior season seems unreal. I know softball isn’t everything in life, but it has played such a big role in our lives and made us who we are today – to not be able to have one last season and to have it end the way it did is hard to imagine.
