While most kids are watching Saturday morning cartoons, one group of Starkville youth were busy helping their neighbors in need.
That desire to help the community was sparked by area youth softball coach Britney Ditzig, who originally came to Starkville to attend Mississippi State University. Now the Illinois native is employed full-time with New York Life as well as serving as coach for the company’s two youth softball teams.
While her title might be coach, the role is about so much more.
“When I started coaching these girls, the big thing was I wanted to be more of an influence rather than a coach,” Ditzig said. “You have good coaches and you have bad coaches, but the ones that impact you are the ones you remember.”
