Going into college I was recruited by a handful of colleges such as Florida Tech University, Pensacola State, and Stanislaus State in which I chose to attend.

For the past three years I have had the privilege of coaching Alexus at Stanislaus State. She has been a starter every year, a leader as well as a 2nd Team Conference Player. Offensively Alexus is the hardest out a pitcher will face, she is a triple-threat with small ball, slapping and hitting. Her knowledge of the game offensively is incredible and she can pick a part a defense with ease. Defensively, I am confident Alexus could play any position on the field (except pitcher). She is extraordinarily athletic and adapts well to situations. She has played middle infield for me and is a top middle infielder in our conference every year. Any team to get Alexus’s will be very lucky. She is a joy to coach and a wonderful human being as well.
I have known Alexus for 4 years now, and played with her for 3. She is a prime example of not only being a powerful leader on and off the field, but her ability to empower others is what makes her unique. Alexus has the ability to influence her teammates in such a way that builds them up, encourages and educates them so they can duplicate this attitude into others. She is excellent at observing the defense when she is up to bat and produces at the plate by setting the tone as a lead off hitter. On defense, Alexus is incredibly knowledgable & observant of the game. She can make decisions quickly and covers a lot of range.
Alexus Martinez on the offensive side just finds ways to get on base, she is the true meaning of the word “Triple Threat” she can bunt, place the ball in front of the defense or hit a shot in the gap. Once she gets on base, she has a quick jump, and she is a very smart base runner. Getting Alexus on base makes your odds go up in scoring runs and placing pressure on the defense. Alexus has the arm, the glove that most players have at the next level. What separates her is her anticipation off the bat and her game knowledge. Alexus always sees the play before the play happens, this comes from being such a great offensive player. The best defenders always use there offensive minds to understand what the base runner will do in all situations and that allows her to be a split second faster in her decision making which leads into outs, also allowing her to be confident in her ability, and that gains the trust of her teammates. Alexus brings leadership, passion and knowledge to the game daily, she respects the game and makes it fun!
