Murrieta, CA


Vista Murrieta High School Nebraska - 2014

Wears No. 12...Parents are Brian and Denise Edwards...Sister, Tatum, played with her professionally in the NPF...Dream job is to work at a zoo with the lions and polar bears...On what it means to play for USA Softball: "It's a very humbling feeling and I'm so honored to represent the USA. I've been dreaming of this since I was a kid. I want to make my family proud and continue to play for them no matter how big the stage is."...On what non-softball sport she'd like to try: "Football and fishing. I have always wanted to play football ever since I was little. Fishing is very relaxing and you are able to travel to beautiful places. Hopefully one day I can try both of these sports."...Personal motto: "Love the Life you Live." I believe if you truly love what you're doing you will be the happiest every single day. If you don't truly love what you're doing, you always have the power to change it. Be the person YOU want to be and LOVE yourself!!!
