Parents of high school athletes wear a lot of different hats. They have to make sure that their child get to and from practice and games, make sure school work is completed, along with all the other jobs of being a parent. Layni Bosler says that she is thankful for all her parents have done for her and the positive influence they have been.
“I think my parents, Cara and Aaron Bosler, are my biggest role models,” she said. “They are very supportive of me and are both very diligent in there work. I would not be the person that I am today without them.”
Layni is a junior at Morrison High School, where she is a member of the fast pitch and slow pitch softball teams. As a student at Morrison, Bosler has had a number of outstanding teachers that have been key to her educational success.
“All of the teachers I’ve had have made an impact on my life,” she said. “My geometry teacher definitely made me think. She’s a really good teacher and she really helped me get through that class. But every teacher I’ve had has really taught me a lot.”
Morrison’s softball head coach, J.T. Freeman, says that Layni is an overall great student athlete.
“Layni is a junior for us this season,” she said. “She pitches and plays in the outfield. She is a great teammate and always puts the team first. She will be a key player for us this season.”
Becoming the softball player that she is has happened because of a couple of different reasons.
“I think good team work and a lot of effort has helped me get to where I am,” Bosler said. “There are a few things that I use to keep myself motivated. My team always keeps me driven. I care so much for the girls I play with and I always want to play my best for them. My love of the sport really inspires me as well and keeps me playing my best every time I step on the field.”
