“I’ve wanted to play softball at OU since the first time I attended a OU softball camp when I was seven years old. This past year when I took my first visit and toured the softball facilities, campus and the academic center, I felt right at home. I look forward to playing for the coaching staff and being part of a winning tradition.”
Coach Gasso Says:
“Tyler appealed to me immediately because of her athletic look on the field. I’ve seen her play shortstop and second base; I’ve seen her play multiple positions on the field and defensively she was always a standout. She’s very smooth and effortless in the field. Offensively, she has really elevated her game. She has game-changing power and speed, which makes her an outstanding all-around athlete. She’s grown up in our camps, so I’ve been able to see her progress and become a very talented athlete. She’s a local athlete and we always try to keep our best, local talent here to play for us. She has a very strong work habit; she has engaged in CrossFit training for a while and is really dedicated to her sport. She’s committed and disciplined in becoming a very good player, so I’m excited about what she is going to bring to the team.”
Please contact Head Coach, Mike Byrne, with any questions.
We hope to see you there and best of luck
