EVALUATIONS

Kaliyah Matthews is a 2021 3B/1B from Newnan, GA. She attends softball power house East Coweta High School and plays her travel ball with the EC Bullets. She has good size at 5-foot-9, 185 pounds and is a strong kid with a ton of power. Defensively, Kaliyah has a strong glove with smooth feet and is explosive laterally, helping her cover the 5-6 hole pretty well. She has a big arm with a 58 mph OH velo. At the dish, Kaliyah sees the ball well and can mash to all fields. Tons of pop in that bat, even going oppo. A competitive player with a phenomenal attitude and natural leadership characteristics. I love the intangibles on this kid and fully expect her to compete for a spot on nearly any roster.

MESSAGE FROM kaliyah

Hello, I am Kaliyah Matthews from Newnan, GA. I am primarily a 3B/1B player. I am a 2021 graduate and currently attend East Coweta High School. I also play my select ball with the EC Bullets. My overhand velocity is 58 mph and my bat exit is 70 mph. I batted .438 during my fall/spring travel ball seasons.

Playing collegiate softball has been a dream of mine since a young age. Through the years of softball, I have made many sacrifices to play, because I am so passionate about the game! I love being with my teammates, which I also see as my sisters, and competing together.

I am an A/B student and I live by this quote: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” My favorite softball quote is: “Outplay, outwork, outlast.” I try to learn something new about softball everyday and use my talent that God has blessed me with. I am ready to see what the future has in store for me.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this message and God bless!
