From the Round Rock High School Dragon Softball field to the Bobcat Softball Complex in San Marcos, Courtney Harris has been a familiar part of softball in central Texas for years. In her senior season as the Texas State third baseman. She has been apart of the Bobcats success this year with the 32-20 record. In Harris’s college career she has had 459 at bats 89 hits and 17 home runs. I was able to sit down with Harris as she shares her story on and off the field.

Harris started following sports after watching her family inspired her to play the game she loves. Growing up Harris had a coach inspire her and encouraged her dreams to pursue playing collegiate softball. Harris mentions how he was able to have such a positive impact on her life.

CH: I have two older brothers and from the time I could walk I was in the stands watching them play sports. That’s how I got into it. I started playing t-ball when I was five and I just played softball ever since. One of my coaches in Arizona coached me for quite a few years, he was one of the best coaches I’ve ever had and you could tell he sincerely wanted us to succeed. He got joy seeing us continue onto the next level and he would do whatever he could to make sure that happened. He would go above and beyond to do what he could to help us reach our goals. He pushed me harder than I thought I ever could because he knew there was more in all of us.

Off the softball field Harris is just like any other college student and likes to catch up on some good t.v. by enjoying some quality time with her Netflix. Harris also likes to keep her sports interests in professional teams in the great state of Texas as she looks up to the tight end Dallas Cowboys Player Jason Witten.

CH: Netflix is like my best friend. I’ve watched One Tree hill, I’ve watched Gossip Girl twice, Pretty Little Liars, Parenthood, Vampire Diaries. The list continues. I’m a Cowboys fan but I’ve always liked Jason Witten. He wasn’t like a huge D1 athlete and just how he portrays himself on and off the field I just really like him a lot.


Here is Courtney’s favorite song ‘All I Need is You’ by the famous Christian Rap singer Lecrae
