AUSTINTOWN OH- The beautiful thing about sports is the merging of multiple personalities that make up a
unified team. Everyone has a role on the field, but also off of it as a teammate. Talent level aside, everyone brings a certain personality to the team and those roles serve importance in trying to craft a winning team.

When talking about personality on The Austintown-Fitch Falcons softball team, look no further than sophomore third baseman Morgan Roby! The classic jokester, Roby exemplifies what softball is and was always meant to be about, having fun! Whether that is messing with Coach Bob, her spitball shooting capabilities or the dance moves she busts out before each inning, Roby looks to be the life of every Falcons party, just don’t play Taylor Swift.

Knowing when to have fun is important, but do not let that fool you about Roby, for she is one of the most dangerous contact hitters in the entire area! Batting a staggering .556 with four extra-base hits this season at the time of this article, Roby has picked up right where she left off her freshman year.

A big family person, Roby is constantly supported by both her mother Amanda and father Mike, who seemingly never miss a game. Also, older brother Dylan who she hopes to follow in his footsteps and become a college level athlete one day.

With the skill level already present and plenty of personality to go along with it, Roby is well on her way in accomplishing her dreams; however, The Falcons are happy to keep her close to home for now.

AUSTINTOWN OH- When speaking to high school volleyball coaches, many of them will tell you one of their
favorite types of players are the utility type. The kind that can and will play while exceeding at any position for the sake of the team. Austintown-Fitch Falcons sophomore Morgan Roby is one of those types of players. A swiss army knife type that has seen playing time at multiple positions, stepping up to cover injuries during the season.

Playing as an outside hitter, opposite side hitter and libero this year, Roby has racked up 213 digs so far this season, tied for third on the team, while averaging over 10 a match. Roby has also recorded 83 kills in her sophomore campaign, servicing as a threat on the attacking side. One of the most remarkable Roby skills? Her unbelievable vertical, at an amazing 27.1 inches, the highest on the team and one of the highest in the school!

Her ability to jump out of the gym and willingness to adapt to several positions is not even Roby’s best quality. That would be her ability to be a constant bright spot on the team with infectious positivity! Looking up to her older brother, Morgan has aspirations of playing athletics at the collegiate level and has the work ethic to match.

YSNs Ty Bartell got the chance to talk with The Falcon sophomore in this edition of Player Profile where they discussed the current season, the support from her family and that amazing jumping ability!

When talking about entering high school sports as a freshmen, it is nerve-racking to say the least, especially when the talent pool is as deep as The Austintown-Fitch Falcons Softball Club. In a culture where everything is earned and nothing given, spots on the team are reserved for those who are willing to put the work in and show dedication. But another major point in Fitch Softball is that where you start in the season is not necessarily where you are going to finish, but the key is to make the most of the opportunities given. 

A freshmen player who has exemplified that to great extent has been Morgan Roby! Splitting her time with both the junior varsity and varsity squads for Fitch this season, Roby is rapidly developing both offensively and defensively. Although playing time is split, in her varsity time this year through both regular season and playoffs, Roby is batting .600 (9/15), with a homerun and 7 RBI on the campaign. Beyond that, Roby has shown tremendous plate discipline by keeping the strikeouts down and showcasing her ability to protect the plate with two strikes. 

Being a multiple sport athlete, Roby is always busy, but stays motivated by witnessing the dreams of her brother Dylan coming true by being able to continue his sport of golf into college, realizing that hard work can pay off! Battling her nerves and battling the best arms in the area, Roby is quickly making a name for herself across Austintown homes everywhere! You will not want to miss this edition of Player Profile when Ty Bartell and Anthony Hartwig sit down to chat with another freshmen star in Austintown, Morgan Roby!
