SYLACAUGA, Ala. – SHS senior softball player Brooke Morgan signed a letter of intent today to play collegiate softball at Central Alabama Community College (CACC).
Morgan has played center-field and shortstop for the Lady Aggies since 9th Grade, but she has played softball since she was 7 years old. Having grown up playing softball, Morgan has developed into a leader both on and off the field. “I am hardworking and lift everyone up, and I try to keep our team together, playing as a team. I feel like I can bring that to CACC,” said Morgan.
Coach Jay Brooks said she has brought leadership to the Lady Aggies since she has been playing. “If it’s a workout, practice, game, getting equipment together, she is a leader,” said Brooks. “She cares about what she does, and she takes a lot of pride in it. It’s those types of qualities that makes programs better. CACC softball got better today because they gained a tool that every ball club could use. She is just a phenomenal young lady.”
Greg Shivers, the softball coach at CACC said Morgan is a complete student athlete, which is what they are looking for at CACC. “She has versatility, she can play multiple positions, she has speed and power, and she can play the short game, as well. We’re looking forward to having her, and we think her best days are ahead of her.”
Morgan decided on CACC after talking to Coach Shivers. She had other offers, but wanted to start at a junior college. “I’m very excited to see where I go these next two years and the skills I’ll obtain. I wanted to get better at the next level, and that’s what I plan to do at CACC.” Morgan plans to play two seasons at CACC, then transfer to pursue Physical Therapy.
