    Default Identify Your DD

    I've thought long and hard about this thread and how to word it. I love reading about some of your dd's and your journeys. Also, I know that some posters have dds who are in college as soph, jr and seniors. Some have dds just beginning the journey in college. I'd love to follow the dd's of Discuss Fastpitch.

    Then, I realize that there are those out there that are less than gracious in what they have to say about some of our dds. Mine is under constant attack. That's fine. She a good kid, not a great athlete, a very hard worker and one of the hardest workers I personally have ever coached and someone that you'd like for your dd to hang with. I know that for certain.

    So, the problem is how to do this thread. I understand that some of you want to remain anonymous as well so that posses a problem.

    I thought that we might share, in either posting on the public or private portion (pms) who our dds are and I'd truly love to follow some of your dds as they play this year.

    I'll start. My child is Brianna Butler and she plays at the University of Missouri at St. Louis (D-II). Again, she is not a superstar and I don't pretend she is. If you don't want to share on the public portion of the site who your child is, send me a pm and we can keep in contact this year.

    Good luck to all!

    I like the idea, and wish we could all do it without the negatives.

    Is this only limited to current college players? I'd like to see/hear from all ages and levels so we could all "feel a part" of our member's journeys. Those little 8-10-12u's are the stars of the future.

    Now I can keep us posted in about 2 months on the D1 HS side. We are fixing to hand out multi state tail whippins like they're free to anyone who might need one. We don't discriminate.

    I love the idea too but I might think that some folks might be a little cautious pre-signing like I am. Maybe I am being a bit paranoid but with as wild as I have heard the recruiting is I want to control as many variables as possible.

    As soon as she signs I will be an open book :-)

    Great Topic...So many on this board are interested, and well should be. It's many a young ladies dream to play softball at the next level, and more importantly to attend college and earn their degree. My DD is a 2015, whom yesterday received her first offer.

    Having been through recruiting process myself (FOOTBALL), my son (FOOTBALL 2003), and now my DD I can tell you that the recruiting game is filled with so many emotions. JOYFUL, PROUD, PAINFUL and unfortunately the one emotion that comes up more than the others DISAPPOINTMENT.

    I would be more than happy to try and answer any questions that y'all might have about my family's journey so far and how we've reached this point. Due to the fact that we're still in the recruiting process, I'm going to be cautious and some of my answers may be vague. I'll do my best to answer your questions you have here on the board or through pm.

    Just a suggestion. This topic may be better suited for the Playing College Softball Section or maybe add a new section named, the Recruiting Trail or something similar.

    18uGoldDad, I thought that was the forum I put it in. I guess I messed up some.

    Hey everyone, I knew that this would be a tough topic to approach. Thus, my introduction. I hope that some of you will pm me so that I can follow your child. It is easy to follow mine. I/we have never been secretive of who I am or my dd but I do understand why most of you would not want that info public. Still, good luck to all of the dds of DFP.

    Take care,

    Darrell Butler

    In hopes of getting this topic rolling again, I wanted to take a moment to update those whom might be
    interested in my 2105 DD's recruitment. Last week she received an offer from one of her dream schools.
    This dream school is a perfect fit for her academically and athletically. This school is a D2 school and we were
    a bit surprised that they offered this soon in the process. My daughter has accepted the offer and is very happy
    about her decision.

    If anyone has any questions about the process and what the experience was like, please don't
    hesitate to ask. I'll do my best to answer.

    18GoldDad, congratulations. My dd plays D-II as well. In fact, she has teammates from California and the State of Washington on her team.

    I would be happy if people would just put what state they were from in their profile. Always wonder what state they are from and if TB is diffrent there. Also always wonder if we play against any of you. BTW my DD plays 12u NSA in North Carolina.
