Preuitt named Gatorade Alabama Softball Player of the Year

Larissa Preuitt was named the 2022 Gatorade Player of the Year for Alabama softball. She is the first player from Hartselle High School to be chosen for this award.

The Gatorade Player of the Year Award recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standard of academic achievement and exemplary character on and off the field.

Preuitt led the Tigers to a 51-9-1 record and the Class 6A North Regional playoffs this past season. She batted .552 with 99 hits, 13 triples, seven home runs, 60 RBI, 103 runs scored and 86 stolen bases. A three-time All-State selection, she’s ranked as the nation’s No. 14 prospect in the Class of 2022 by Extra Inning Softball.

She has participated on a service-mission trip to Guatemala, served as a bible studies instructor, and volunteered locally on behalf of the Night to Shine organization.

“Larissa Preuitt is a stud,” said Lindsay Vanover, head coach at Sparkman High. “She is legit on all sides of her game—offense, defense, speed and knowledge of the game.”

She had a 3.80 GPA in the classroom. She has signed a National Letter of Intent to play softball on scholarship at the University of Alabama this fall.

Preuitt is now a finalist for the Gatorade National Player of the Year Award that will be announced later this month.
