Get to Know …
Brady is a three-year varsity player for the Crescenta Valley Falcons’ softball team. On game days, you can find her in right field, often battling the sun for fly balls. But she won’t be soaking up the California rays for much longer. In the fall, she’ll enroll at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she will study kinesiology. Here is a little more about Brady in her own words.
Favorite sport other than softball:
I really like watching football. My dad got me into watching it.
Physiology. I’m a huge nerd when it comes to the body. I’m interested in sports medicine and how the body works.
Ms. [Amber] McLeod. She was my history teacher. She was so down to earth.
Favorite place to eat:
Nicole Bird (a Lady Falcon soccer player).
Biggest jokester on the softball team:
Hannah Cookson. She is hilarious. Olivia Thayer is a close second.
I like to relax. I totally love sleeping, oh, and eating Krispy Kreme donuts. I’m on a record of seven in one sitting. I’m obviously not counting calories!
Isn’t the closest Krispy Kreme in Burbank?
It’s so worth it.
Favorite recent movie:
You like Disney movies, though. What’s your favorite Disney film?
Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
Why did you choose Boulder for school?
I love Colorado so much. I love the idea of having four seasons.
Are you excited to go off to college?
I’m excited to start my own life and experience new life. But I’m nervous. I’m going to be a sucker and be homesick but I’m going to have to get used to it at some point.
Working with Olympic athletes and being a physical trainer for them.
You’ve dislocated your knee twice in the past year. Are you cautious when you take the field for games?
I’m definitely worried when sliding or pivoting. Pivoting destroys it. I have to be careful but I can’t be too careful otherwise I’ll be too worried about my knee rather than the game.
Favorite moment from high school:
Getting an A the first semester in physiology this year. I screamed through the hallway running. It was a total movie scene. It’s such a hard class.
Person I admire most:
It’s cliché, but my parents. I feel like I get the best of both worlds … they’ve taught me who I want to be.
And who do you want to be?
I want to better myself and I want to better other people. I want to be that role model, to help people out and be compassionate, be that person you can always talk to.
