Blog Assignment 1

My name is Jacob Webb.  I am from Citronelle, Alabama.  I love sports.  I am a huge fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide.  I am also a huge fan of the Atlanta Braves. I have previously coached baseball and football at Fruitdale High School.  I’m 25 years old.  I have an older brother and an older sister.  I also have an adorable niece named Dylan Grace.  I also have a girlfriend named Amber who is an Elementary Education major here at South. 
 I am now the head coach of the Junior Varsity Softball Team and assistant coach of the Varsity Softball Team at Leroy High School.  I chose to go into education because it will give me a chance to bring together my love of sports and history while giving me the opportunity to help young people.  I am also a full-time student here at South Alabama. I went to Faulkner for a year before transferring to South this past fall. I chose South because it is close to home. I would like to attend graduate school and become a high school principal. 


  1. Hey Jacob! I am Amanda Spence. I'm also majoring in Elementary Education, like your girlfriend. I am a huge Alabama fan, too! Sports are a huge thing in the South so you have chose a terrific profession. Being able to relate to kids through sports, while also being a history teacher or principal, will make you very successful. If you need help, I'll try to help the best I can!

  2. Hey Jacob,

    I am from Uriah Alabama, so we probably played your team in Fruitdale. I hope to one day to become a coach. Baseball is my favorite sport right next to basketball.

    I hope you will enjoy this class, and I think you will find some useful information from EDM 310.

    Good luck this semester,
