Morgan stated ” I learned what family truly was while playing softball at Union City. Every time I went out on the field, I gave my absolute all and believe me, it wasn’t for myself. It was for every girl I was blessed to play beside and both coaches I was blessed to play under. I want to thank my coaches, Schmidt and Benge. They not only always pushed me on the field but they each constantly pushed me academically as well.”
