Earlier today Omaha Marian junior OH Emily Bressman made her commitment to Creighton University. She was good enough to take time this evening to answer some questions and her recruitment and her decision to walk-on for the Bluejays.
Prep Dig: Why did you choose Creighton?
Emily Bressman: “Being at Creighton really felt like being at home. I just got the feeling it was where I belonged. All the coaches, players and the staff welcomed me with such open arms and kindness, which was huge for me.”
Prep Dig: What other schools were you considering?
Emily Bressman: Kansas State, South Dakota and Omaha.
Prep Dig: What are your thoughts about playing for coach Kirsten Bernthal Booth?
Emily Bressman: “I am so excited to play under coach Booth. Seeing the way she has built the program and the strong relationship she has with her players in incredible.”
Prep Dig: How important was/is it to you to be able to play close to home?
Emily Bressman: “It’s huge playing close to home. I love my family and it’s amazing that they have multiple opportunities to come to Creighton games.”
Prep Dig: Now that you’ve made your college choice, do you feel more “free” to just go out and play?
Emily Bressman: “I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. And it’s a great feeling because I know it was the right choice.”
Prep Dig: Has Creighton said if you will get a chance to hit or will you be back row – and how do you feel about that?
Emily Bressman: “I will most likely be playing back row for Creighton. Coach Booth mentioned I have a ‘hammer of an arm’ so I will be able to take some swings in practices and hit back row a lot. I am excited to take my defense to the next level.”
Prep Dig: Is there anything else you want to add to make sure gets mentioned?
Emily Bressman: “Creighton has always been my dream school. Marian coaches and my Nebraska Elite coaches have really made this dream come true. I am thrilled to be a part of the Creighton family.”
