St. Amant’s Addison Jackson Named MaxPreps Louisiana Softball Player of the Year

Addison Jackson added to her list of accolades Monday as the senior pitcher was named Louisiana Softball Player of the Year by MaxPreps.

The Boston College commit led the 34-2 Gators to a Division I (Non-Select) Louisiana title, finishing the season with a five-hit shutout over Sam Houston. For the season, Jackson was 31-1 with a 0.93 ERA and 288 strikeouts in 188.2 innings. At the plate, she hit .500 and at the time of the selection, she led the country with 28 home runs. She finished her career with two consecutive state titles. 

Each year since 2008, MaxPreps has recognized outstanding performers in high school softball. America’s source for high school sports continues the tradition to close out the 2023 season by naming the top player in each state. Selections are based on team success and individual excellence, in addition to local and state accolades.

Each state’s MaxPreps Player of the Year will be considered for inclusion in the MaxPreps All-America Team, which is scheduled to be released in June.
