For four seasons, Jessie Warren played third base for the Florida State Seminoles softball club. The 4-time All ACC player was consistently one of the most productive hitters in the lineup.
In 2018, she led her club to their first ever Women's College World Series title beating Washington. Jessie was named the Most Outstanding Player after leading the team in eight different categories, including a .404 batting average, 21 home runs, 70 RBI and a .836 slugging percentage.
In Game 1 of the WCWS, she made the play of the year in college softball, snagging a seventh-inning sacrifice bunt attempt on a diving catch to preserve their 1-0 victory. That catch was the No. 1 play on ESPN’s SportsCenter Top Plays and even got the attention of people like Kobe Bryant on Twitter.
Her final game with Florida State, Jessie went 3-4 with a home run and 2 RBI to help the Seminoles to an 8-3 victory and their first ever NCAA National Championship.
After her college career ended, Warren was selected seventh overall in the National Pro Fastpitch Draft by the USSSA Pride where she helped her team to another title, the Cowles Cup championship, defeating the Chicago Bandits 4-0.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk with Jessie about 2018, winning the National Championship, dealing with fame, where her walk with Christ began, the spiritual bond that her Seminoles team built during their run to the title, and what the Lord is teaching her right now after an incredible year.
