Browerville's MVP talent

The Marissa Callahan file

  • Name: Marissa Callahan
  • School: Browerville-Eagle Valley
  • Class: Junior
  • Honors: Breakdown Top 75 juniors
  • Coach comment: "Marissa had a nice year both at the plate and in the circle. She became one of our better, more patient hitters and continued to improve her pitching as the year went on. Marissa still needs to pitch more efficiently as she sometimes throws too many pitches. However, her ability to strike girls out has gotten us out of some tough situations." — Browerville-Eagle Valley coach Jeff Myers

What's the best part of playing high school softball and why?

  • The best part of playing high school softball is being with my teammates and making life long memories with them.

Tell me about the outlook for your team this year. What are the strengths of your team?

What other activities are you involved in at the high school level?

With the high school sports world on pause, THE BREAKDOWN wants to make sure these athletes are recognized for their accomplishments on the field, court, rink, diamond, etc.

The schedule of spotlight players will be as follows:

  • Monday: softball
  • Tuesday: baseball
  • Wednesday: girls' volleyball
  • Thursday: boys' and girls' basketball
  • Friday: boys' and girls' hockey

Each of our spotlight players will have action and posed photos, as well as the Q and A information they provided for this past year's Breakdown book in their respective sport.
