Emily Glover knew at the end of last season she was not ready to hang up her softball cleats. This week she made it official – she will be playing another year of softball at Southern Union.
Emily is a 2016 graduate of Sneads High School and excelled not only in the classroom but on the softball field and volleyball court. Under coaches Kelvin Johnson and Sheila Roberts, the choice was hers when she left as a Pirate and she chose softball with no regrets.
After one year at Chipola, she is moving on to Southern Union in just a few short weeks. About Johnson, Glover says, “I liked how coach Johnson thought, that we should have fun but the big picture was we should win. He’s a good coach and knows the game and knows what he’s talking about.” As far as Roberts on the volleyball court, Glover says she can’t be topped, “I love Coach Roberts. She has helped me a lot from seventh grade through all sports I played and she’s been a big influence in my life as an athlete and as the person I am too.”
About her move to Southern Union, Emily says, “I’m excited and blessed to have an opportunity to further my education while playing.”
Emily thanked her family for supporting her through all the hard work and for encouraging her to go after her dreams, for telling her she could do anything as long as she put her mind to it.
At Sneads, Glover batter .371, had 33 hits, 29 runs scored, 22 RBIs, 27 singles, five doubles and a triple her senior year.
