ABC All-Star: LSH's Jocelyn Anderson

Posted: Updated:
"She always keeps a smile on our faces, and always has a positive attitude, which we really need on this team every once in awhile" says Loyola Sacred Heart sophomore outfielder Skylar Hollenback.

That's the kind of stuff you hear when you ask teammates about Jocelyn Anderson, a sophomore who is just in her second year playing softball.

"She cheers for us here.  She's been a cheerleader in the fall and winter, and comes out here to play softball, so her fist year ever playing was last year.  She's just a kid who works hard every day in practice" says LSH head coach Troy Waters.

She's improved greatly on the field, and it's just one more thing for her to add to her resume.

"I am in three honors classes, and I take choir, and art, and I really enjoy them all," says the sophomore outfielder Anderson.

All the activities Anderson does are noticed by her teammates as well.

"She is definitely taking a lot of hard classes and challenging herself. She's taking art and choir, she loves to sing. She's busy but she still finds time to come out here and do her best," says Hollenback.

When you ask her why she wanted to pickup softball her freshman year of high school, she says it's simple.  She likes to learn.

"That's why I enjoy softball so much and why I really wanted to come out here, because it's something I haven't done and it was a great learning experience.  Having a diverse schedule in school has encouraged me to learn, and I love it," says Anderson.

While her on the field performance continues to improve, she's already one of the best on the team when it comes to attitude.

"Her positive attitude spreads like a wild-fire. So does negativity too, but once we are negative she is on us to be positive and it spreads," says Hollenback.

"She's never down on herself, when we're in the dug-outs, when the team is playing she's always cheering, and leading stuff from the dug-out.  It's just a breath of fresh air to always have a kid who is so positive who is always there for," adds Waters
