Bryan had been playing soccer since she was 4, but she knew
softball would provide her the best opportunity to play in college.
She's reached new heights since making that decision, although it
was a tough one.
"I knew I could take softball to a higher level because I love
playing softball and it's something that comes naturally," said
Bryan, who has a .784 slugging percentage, a .488 batting average and
a .546 on-base percentage in her varsity career. "I play softball
because I want to be the best out there.
"I want to show people that I could succeed."
She's succeeded and people have noticed. Bryan said she's received
letters from the University of Michigan, Illinois, Arkansas,
Louisiana Tech University and UC Santa Barbara.
Bryan understands how far she's come, but she's far from finished.
"I want to improve on everything," she said. "There is always room
for improvement. If you think that you are the best and you stop
working, people are going to get better than you.
"There is no stopping."
