What is she known for? Riley was an NFCA all-Region selection in 2011, her junior campaign, during which she hit .354 with eight home runs and recorded a 2.56 ERA in the circle. She was twice named all-SEC academic and was on the 2012 Player of the Year preseason watch list.

Here's something interesting... In her final two seasons at Greenwood High School in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Rachel led her team to back-to-back state championships, batting .476 over those two seasons.

Quotable quote: "Appreciate the people around you and the time you have playing softball because it goes by so fast."

What's she up to now? Since graduating in 2012, Rachel has stayed at UK as a student in the university's dental school. She will graduate in May and will be a practicing dentist thereafter.
