Josephson ‘suddenly’ inks with Austin Peay

Farragut High School Lady Admiral softball player Amy Josephson signed national letter of intent papers with the Austin Peay State University Lady Governors of Clarksville, Monday, April 11, in the Commons of the school.

Surrounded by her parents, coaches and the entire 2005 softball team, the senior center fielder seemed to take the ceremony in stride.

“This scholarship came up kind of suddenly,” Josephson said. “I sent a skills tape to Austin Peay and Coach (Jim) Perrin called me back.”

Perrin, the head coach of the Lady Govs, asked Josephson to attend a softball showcase in early March in Rockwood, and then he came to watch her play in a pre-season tournament in Middle Tennessee the next weekend.

“He called me right back and said he wanted me to play ball for them,” Josephson said.

Noting that 2003 FHS grad and former Lady Ads shortstop Michelle Edmonds plays for Austin Peay, Josephson said, “Michelle and I have played softball together since I was eleven-years-old.”

Josephson and Edmonds played summer ball together on a competitive team.

FHS coach David Moore, who has coached Josephson throughout her high school softball career, said, “I think Amy will be successful on the college level. I have seen her mature a lot over the years and work to improve her skills.”

Noting that Josephson came in as a shortstop her freshman year, Moore said that he moved her to the outfield and she has been “strong” in the outfield ever since.

Adding that Josephson is an excellent competitor, Moore said that he believes that Austin Peay will be a good fit for her.
