Incoming Alabama softball freshman pitcher Montana Fouts earned a pair of national awards this week, named the ALL-USA High School Player of the Year by USA Today and the MaxPreps National Softball Player of the Year.

Fouts is a four-time MaxPreps All-American and three-time Gatorade State Player of the Year from Grayson, Ky. She was dominant in the circle during her senior season at East Carter High School, posting a 37-1 record with 31 shutouts and 12 no-hitters, including eight perfect games. She allowed just nine runs, three earned, over 232.1 innings pitched for a 0.09 ERA while striking out 481 batters. She also hit 64-113 (.566) with 71 RBIs and 32 extra-base hits, including 12 home runs.

Over seven seasons as part of the varsity, she owns a 148-15 record, 0.32 ERA and 1,964 strikeouts.

Fouts is one of five newcomers to join the Alabama program for the 2019 season, along with NLI signees Kloyee Anderson, Kayla Davis and Skylar Wallace and junior college transfer Krystal Goodman from Chipola College.
