Where Are They Now: Jaycee Affeldt

Who is she? Jaycee Affeldt, a former pitcher for the Troy Trojans.

What is she known for? Affeldt was a four-year star for the Trojans, earning Sun Belt Pitcher of the Year honors in her senior season of 2015. She was named to the all-conference first team and all-region third-team that same season, following a campaign that saw her post a 2.65 ERA and 150 strikeouts in just over 182 innings of work.

Here's something interesting... Jaycee was a member of the Canadian Junior National Team in 2011, competing in the Junior Women's World Championships in South Africa that same year. In addition to pitching in that tournament, she also hit .423 at the plate and led her team with nine RBI.

Quotable quote: "There is no substitute for hard work. Things will not work out for you unless you work for what you want. You will only get out what you put into your college career. So why not play and practice with passion and give 100% of everything you have?"

What's she up to now? After a single season as the Volunteer Assistant Coach at her alma mater, Jaycee was hired this offseason at Alabama-Huntsville (D2), where she will begin 2017 as the program's graduate assistant pitching coach. At UAH, she will serve under head coach Les Stuedeman, sister of Mississippi State head coach Vann Stuedeman. In addition to her coaching duties, Jaycee is also working to complete her master's degree in psychology.
