Jo Byrns High School senior Jaya Herring signed a scholarship offer on Wednesday, November, 13, to play softball for Middle Tennessee State University beginning with the 2020-2021 school year.

 

Herring, who has played softball since she was four is ranked 58th nationwide as an outfielder and has achieved, All County, and All Tournament, recognition during her career .  She said her scholarship offer was memorable for her because it was offered after playing a game at their stadium. She added that her chance to now play softball at the next level is a dream come true.

 

“I am so, so, excited,” she said. “This has been a dream of mine since I was little, and to be able to play division one softball is just amazing. It seems so unreal.”

 

While playing ball for MTSU, Herring said she plans to major in Biology, with a desire to become a physician’s assistant upon graduation.
