Miami’s Addy Douthit Athlete Spotlight Presented by Welch State Bank

Addy Douthit 

Miami High School

Very few prep athletes are having the type of spring Addy Douthit of Miami High School is having. The track, soccer, and softball standout trades one uniform and cleats for another on her way to the next competition. In a three-day stretch, you may find Addy competing track on Thursday, soccer on Friday and softball on Saturday. 

As a member of the track team, Douthit is competing in several events and having some success doing so.

“I have ran track since sixth grade year and I am currently in the 400-meters, 4×200 relay, and the 4×400 relay,” said Douthit. 

When she leaves the track for the pitch, Douthit becomes one of the go-to players on the soccer team. Soccer is a sport that seems to come natural to Douthit, but it’s her teammates that make being on the soccer team great. 

“I play striker and what I love most is how everyone picks each other up when we’ve made a mistake,” said Douthit. 

As an infielder for the softball team, Douthit can continue representing her school on the field in competition. As a student-athlete, Douthit believes it’s her responsibility to be a role model for the younger generation. 

“What I enjoy most is getting to be a role model for the younger generation of athletes,” said Douthit. 

Trying to determine your favorite moments in a season while playing three sports is difficult but knowing which teammate you look up to is an easier answer. 

“I don’t really have a favorite moment, but I have really liked all of the success that we are having on the track team and soccer team. A teammate I look up to is Gabby Raymond because she is never negative about anything and is overall a great person and player,” said Douthit. 

Having the energy and desire to compete is in the genes. Addy’s father, David Douthit is the boys’ soccer coach at Miami HS, but Addy said she finds inspiration from family members who are no longer with us. 

“My nana and my cousin Billie Jo because they both passed in 2019 and they have both made a huge impact on my life,” said Douthit. 

When her high school playing days come to an end, Douthit plans to attend college and pursue and degree while competing in a sport. For now, this student-athlete enjoys listening to music and spending time with friends when time permits. Douthit did mention one other goal for this spring. 

“This season I want to help all of our relays qualify for state,” said Douthit.
