Ron Ammons | Head Coach | Softball | University of Findlay

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

We are seeking student-athletes who effectively combine and demonstrate the characteristics of competitiveness, self-confidence, softball ability, responsibility, teamwork, emotional resilience and academic dedication.


Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?

Our ideal player is motivated and dedicated academically, is as talented as the best opposing players that we face, and is able to demonstrate a high degree of competitiveness while augmenting the efforts of teammates and inhibiting the efforts of the opposition. This ideal player anticipates actions that are strategic to winning and is able to perform those actions. All the while, this ideal player maintains emotional balance and does not allow either favorable or unfavorable episodes to affect their optimal efforts. All of this player’s actions and efforts are performed within the rules and spirit of the game of softball.
