Ally Bessette is an exercise science major from Bryan, Texas.
A second baseman for the softball team, her favorite book is “God’s Not Dead” by Rice Broocks. She has a passion for adventures and loves camping with her family.
Having a family who played, Bessette grew up around softball. At 5 years old she started playing wiffle ball.
Bessette doesn’t only play for herself. She strives to act as a role model to younger girls, inspiring them with what she does on and off the field.
“I play for all the little girls out there who want to play softball,” she said. “The ones that look up to you.”
Bessette’s favorite food is chicken nuggets.
“I just decided that right now, because I’m really feeling some chicken nuggets,” she said.
