"I think I love to play softball and I have a passion for the game," she said.

Pensacola State assistant coach Becky Horn was on hand Tuesday to see Kelch sign with the Pirates. She said the Pirate coaches were impressed with Kelch the first time she tried out.

"The first time we saw Kayla she came and worked out for us with a group of kids," Horn said. "She has such a great work ethic and she's very athletic. She has a positive attitude and she was talking and cheering for people.

"She was being such a great teammate and she didn't even know the people she was working out with. That's the kind of player we want in our program."

Kelch, who plays shortstop for Crestview, will start out as a utility play at Pensacola State.

Kelch isn't worried about where she will play.

"I will go in there and fight for a position and play my hardest," she said.
