It has been very challenging at times, but there were three walk-ons who tried out for the team and I was the only one to make it on the squad. This really boosted my confidence because it made me realize I have what it takes to make it on a college roster. Being a walk-on, I feel like i have a target on my back and it just makes me work harder.
