I am a senior student playing softball and am looking into playing for college as well. What steps would I need to take to achieve these goals?
Drake University
Hey Abby! We would need you to get in contact with Drakes softball coach, Rick Calvert. We are a D1 school, so most of the time athletes are already in contact with coaches. If you want to set up a meeting with Rick let me know! I can for sure get you in contact so you can learn more about the program. My email is nick.drahozal@drake.edu
