Amanda Williams Inducted Into Harrison High HOF

Amanda Williams, one of the most popular NPF players in the last several years, added another award to her trophy case recently, as she was inducted into her high school's Hall of Fame!

"AWill", as she's known to fans, was the third softball star to be inducted into the school's hall of fame, following Audra Thomas in 1996 & former fellow pro star Jessica Sallinger in 2012. Amanda was part of a nine-member class of 2013 that included four other individual champions, as well as a championship-winning 2000 women's golf squad.

Amanda played softball, basketball, and ran track from 1999 to 2002 at HHS, earning eleven letters along the way. Quoting directly from the Hall of Fame announcement, "She was a three-time 1st team All-State selection in fastpitch and a member of the 2000 state championship team."

Amanda went on to a hugely-successful career at Marshall University that eventually culminated in a second-round draft selection by the Chicago Bandits. She spent seven years in the league, before sitting out the 2013 season.

Amanda has been a great friend to all of us here at Justin's World, so we want to wish her great congratulations on her induction and recognition as truly one of the best of all-time!
