As part of OnDeck Softball’s nation reach across the nation, the testing component of OnDeck Measurements (ODM®) was brought to Texas in mid-March as over 100 players in Kevin Shelton’s Texas Glory organization were evaluated in drills such as 10-, 20- and 40-yard dashes as well as grip strength, ball exit speed and throwing velocity.
These testing measurements and individual scores produce the Allister Index, a measurement of athleticsm.
Among the standouts in the Glory organization who produced high Allister Index numbers were 2020 USA National Team member SS Jayda Coleman (Oklahoma), 2020 C Hayden Brown (LSU), 2020 1B Trinity Cannon (Texas A&M), 2020 C Ashlyn Reavis (Nicholls State), and 2020 MI Riley Love (Texas Tech).
The leaders in the sprint categories, 2019 MI Caraline Woodall (Indiana) and 2020 OF Mackenzie Denson (Minnesota), showed “solid speed and quickness,” according to OnDeck’s Derek Allister.
“Woodall checked in with a 2.708 home-to-first and Denson just eclipsed her with a 2.707,” he added.
“Arkansas native 2021 C/SS Savannah White deserves mention for her superlative throwing velocity of 71 mph which puts her in a very elite group,” Allister stated. “Rarely do we see velocity above 70 mph.”
Below you will see the Top 10 marks in nine categories.
