Today I am thankful for the Maroon and White. I was asked recently what it meant to have worn the Maroon and White as a Mississippi State Bulldawg. Trying to capture my experiences, my pride, my loyalty, and my passion to a program who served as a catalyst for helping me find myself is worth expressing.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
Wearing the Maroon and White was powerful in that it provided me an opportunity to play in one of the most premier softball conferences in the country representing the SEC. The Maroon and White was empowering in that it equipped me for successes and failures both on the softball field and later in my career as a coach. Wearing the Maroon and White represented an experience that captured the true essence of being a STUDENT-ATHLETE; one that challenged me to dream beyond the game. The Maroon and White represented past players who broke barriers in order for players like me to play freely with equal rights and opportunities. Lastly, the Maroon and White represented a dream come true for a little girl who fell in love with the game of softball at the age of 5 and never stopped.
REBORN. RENEWED. RECOLORED.
