Adams signs with Coahoma CC
By TAYLOR HAWKINS
Jessica Morghanne Adams completed her lifelong dream of becoming a collegiate softball player on Wednesday when she signed with Coahoma Community College. The catcher has started for Yazoo County High since 2008.
Adams was awestruck by the monumental event of signing the scholarship papers.
“I’m ready to start the next phase of my career,” said Adams. “It’s very exciting.”
As a seventh grader, she was asked to take control of the team and become a starting pitcher, but Yazoo County head softball coach Grant Andrews had other plans for the young rising star.
“During the summer of 2009, I asked her to switch to catcher because she had a strong arm,” Andrews said.
The move turned out to be a huge success. As a catcher, Adams threw out an astonishing 63 percent of base runners throughout her career.
