Carson Sellers, a 4-year varsity player for Leesville softball, is returning back to Leesville three years after graduating as an assistant coach for the varsity team.
“I believe that my more laid back approach to coaching will fit nicely with Coach James and Coach Ally’s methods,” said Sellers.
Sellers, a junior at NC State, jumped at the opportunity to come back and become an assistant coach at Leesville per Bryan James’, head coach, request. The amount of time and effort needed to fill this role is not intimidating to her as she has already attended a few pre-season workouts.
Sellers has voiced that her hopes for the upcoming season are to create strong relationships with the players. She is excited to see how the seniors, who were freshman her senior year, have progressed not only as players but also as young women.
Crucial advice that Sellers has given to current players is to always come to practice or games with a positive attitude, put yourself out there, give it your all, and to prove your spot on the team. Having team spirit, being a fast base runner are a few examples of ways she stated on how to positively contribute to the team.
“As I reminisce about the time I got to spend with Carson, I can say that she was the big sister of the team,” said Viviana Straniero, senior and current player.
Sellers thrived on and off the field and continues to do so in the real world. Leesville’s softball community is excited to see what Sellers has to offer the team this season.
