“I want to be a nurse and work with young children,” she said.

The soon-to-be Jaguars softball catcher also plans to leave her mark on the University of Houston-Victoria as part of the FIRST 200.

“It’s going to be cool to be able to start our own traditions at the school,” she said.

Outside of school, Droz enjoys riding her Honda dirt bike.
