Hi, my name is Alex Albright and I’m a senior on the field hockey team at Mercyhurst University. I am starting this blog for my Intro to Social Media class. Field hockey is my favorite sport of all time, so that is what this blog will be about. I began playing field hockey in seventh grade which means I have been playing field hockey competitively for almost ten years. As a young child, my mother always pushed me to try different sports because she knew I needed to be active. I tried almost everything from soccer to softball to basketball, but I never felt I was good at any of those sports. Then it happened. My mother gave me a field hockey stick and took me to a field hockey camp. Before I knew it, I finally found a sport I was good at.
