She is happy to be in Lexington, since her husband of five years, Kyle, is employed at the Three Oaks Mine.

Coach Player is a graduate of Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. She played volleyball for Henderson until an injury cut her career short. Player attended Pleasant Grove High School, near Texarkana, Texas. Pleasant Grove’s baseball team has twice ended Giddings’ hopes at the state tourney.

Coach Player is enthusiastic about inheriting an experienced team that should compete for post season play. “The girls make the job fun instead of a job. I am very happy to be in Lexington.”
