strengths are hitting and fielding instruction. Upon meeting Coach Bruce it is evident that his“passion for this game burns as bright as ever”.
Coach Shawn is excited to travel to Manila and shares what this trip means to her: “I cannot begin to express how grateful I am for this opportunity to visit the Philippines and to be able to share my gift and softball knowledge in my grandfathers’ native land. Both of my grandfathers’ came to America from the Philippines as children in search of a better life and opportunity. I grew up in Stockton, California and through softball I was able to rise abovemy difficult circumstances and be the first in my entire family to obtain a college degree from a top 10 university. I have also achieved athletic success surpassing my wildest dreams. I have been a NCAA Division I National Champion, All-American and nominated the first woman softball player inducted into the Texas Sport Hall of Fame. None of this would be possible without the courage, strength and wisdom of my grandfathers and their plight to move our family forward. I live my life trying to create these same type opportunities for others. Opportunities change lives!
