The “Mac Attack” is heading east, way east.
Mac Morgan, a powerful hitter with a rocket arm for the Sulphur Springs Lady Cats signed a national letter of intent to play college softball with Big East Conference member Providence College of Rhode Island.
Morgan was quizzed on why she’s taking her big softball skills to the school located in the smallest state in the union, 1,700 miles away from her home in Texas.
“I took the visit there and really liked it. I got to stay in the dorm and meet the coaches and the other players. It just seemed like the place for me,” Morgan said. “When you know you know, I just loved it. It felt right. Rhode Island is a different atmosphere from Texas, but it seemed like a nice place to play.”
WINNSBORO – With a name like Godley and a quarterback that is literally good, Winnsboro will have their work cut out for them on Friday night in regional playoff contest at Midlothian.
Godley Wildcats have the upper hand in the polls with a 21-point favor. The other cards they will deal come in the form of quarterback senior Riley Good. This season Good has been just that—good in both rushing with over 1,000 yards and passing gaining 800 for his 11-0 team.
“They are the complete package—fast and good size,” said Winnsboro Red Raider head football coach Steve Pinnell. “They use the spread to run the ball. Their quarterback (Riley Good) is their playmaker. It doesn’t matter if he is throwing or running.”
