Athlete of the Week-Morgyn Otte Pic.JPG

Randolph senior Morgyn Otte talks pitching, food, what she would do if she didn’t play softball and her future plans.

Q: If you never picked up a softball, what sport would you excel at the most?

A: “Probably volleyball, because I really enjoy volleyball and it’s always been right behind softball.”

Q: When you’re not playing a sport or working out, what are your hobbies?

A: “Hanging out with my siblings, I have a little sister who is eight and I really enjoy catching for her and helping her and she enjoys learning from me. Hanging out with her is probably what I enjoy the most outside of sports and all of that stuff.”

Q: Go to meal at the end of the day, after tournaments?

A: “Pizza . . . just pizza.”

Q: Chicago or New York style pizza?

A: “For sure New York.”

Q: Favorite sports teams?

A: “Well obviously the Vikings, and my brother really likes the Seahawks, so I guess I like them too.”

Q: Favorite pitch to throw?

A: “Rise ball.”

Q: If you could learn to throw any pitch, what would it be?

A: “Probably a screw ball.” 

Q: What are your plans for after this year?

A: “I’m heading to Southwest Minnesota State University (and playing softball). I’m going to be studying elementary education and possibly minor in coaching.”

Q: Looking to improve on anything before heading to Southwest Minnesota State?

A: “Leadership probably and again, just making sure I just have all my pitches down.”
