Why Autumn Picked Arkansas: "I love the softball coaches."
What Larabee Says About Autumn: "She is the fastest player from home to home (10.68) that I have ever timed. If the ball bounces twice off her bat, she's laughing. Will play in the outfield for us and is also a triple threat at the plate. I've been very impressed with the improvements on her full swing."
