1. What is your proudest athletic moment? I would have to say my proudest athletic moment would have to be when I came back from a one month injury, It was the Floyd Central game and my first at bat I hit a home run and my second at bat I hit a double. This is my proudest moment because I knew after my injury the game was going to be nothing but a mental battle when I went to play again and I was proud of myself for overcoming it.

2. What is your ideal meal/snack before a game? Peanut butter and jelly.

3. If you were trying out for American Idol, what would be your "go to" song? Andra Day – "Rise Up”

4. Which athlete do you look up to on a college/professional level? Why? Muhammad Ali because he wasn't just an athlete, he was an ambassador of peace and stood up for his beliefs

5. What is your favorite movie quote? Favorite movie quote is from Sandra Bullock, "I'm a big believer in karma. You get what you give, whether it's bad or good.”

6. How does your faith impact your approach to sports? I believe without God nothing is possible. Without God i wouldn't be able to wake up in the morning for those early games, without God I wouldn't get to be on the field with my teammates, and without God the game I love would have never been created.

7. What is your favorite cartoon character? SpongeBob

8. All-time favorite board game? Sorry

9. Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry? Favorite app? iPhone. Pandora is my favorite app because I love listening to music.

10. What is your favorite local restaurant? Cheddars

11. What is your favorite reality TV show? The Kardashians.

12. What is your greatest fear? Losing the people I love.

13. What is your best quality/characteristic? My smile and personality.

14. Favorite junk/comfort food? Hot Fries

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? 9:00 p.m. because that's the time where my family gets together and watches movies

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? Jayysann and I believe either one of my coaches or teammates started to call me that because at the time Jordan Vorbrink was on the team and it was confusing with two Jordans.

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? Honestly any place because I love to help those who are in need.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I guess you can say I'm a pretty good dancer.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? I would travel back in time to see my Uncle Pete, who died from cancer when I was little, so he could see me as a mature young lady and maybe see me play the sport I love.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would ask all the past and present political leaders throughout the world what is the purpose for war?
