Texas Travelers Pitcher Chosen as USA Elite Select All-American
MaKynli Miller, pitcher for Texas Travelers Gold, has been chosen to play in the USA Elite Select All-American games to be held in Orlando, Florida.
USA Elite Select has partnered with the All American Scouting Network (AASN) and the NPF to provide a three-day event experience for elite players. Participating athletes will have the opportunity to showcase their individual talents through two days of evaluations on athletic and game performance. Players will be evaluated on athletic testing, offensive and defensive testing, mental toughness and overall game performance.
The National Camp concludes with the Select 30 All American Games, which features the top 30 athletes in each graduation class as selected by AASN following two days of evaluations. These athletes will compete against each other in two games to determine who will be named First and Second Team All-Americans. The final All-American teams will be announced via a selection show on Flo Softball following the event. The country has been divided into eight regions and we will be selecting the top 26 players (13 girls on each team, two teams in each age group) to represent their respective region.
Miller came to the Texas Travelers Gold by way of Many, Louisiana. Upon MaKynli’s arrival to the Travelers she instantly provided a strong addition to the pitching staff. Her poise on the mound allows the Texas Travelers to go deep into tournaments. This was shown recently as the Texas Travelers won the USSSA State Championship as well as the ASA North Texas National Qualifier Championship. Kyn as she is known to her friends, family and fans consistently has a WHIP under a one because of her accuracy and tight spins.
“When Kyn came to the Travelers, we saw a true leader on the mound and at the plate. She is a very athletic girl with a great attitude. She gave us something that we were lacking this season and that is a One-Two punch on the mound. Combining Kyn with E (Elizabeth Schaefer) on the mound has instantly given the Texas Travelers one of the top pitching staffs in the country” states, Coach Kyle Bennett of the Texas Travelers Gold.
The Texas Travelers Gold will complete the season defending their Triple Crown 2016 Championship finish, 14U Wilson Tulsa Elite Invitational, World Fastpitch Championship, and ASA National Championship along with a handful of other top tournaments around the country. MaKynli Miller will continue to take the mound for the Travelers helping them stay as one of the elite select softball teams in the country.
