My name is Jason Pringle and I would like to take this time to let you know a little more about myself. I was born and raised in Limestone County and my roots run deep. Not only did I grow up in this area, I have, in my adult years, helped the area youth grow and build. In the past, I was a member of the board for Groesbeck Little Dribblers. For the past 12 years I have been a fixture on the baseball and softball fields for our youth. Serving on each board when they were separate entities and being a part of unifying the separate baseball and softball boards into the Groesbeck Youth Baseball Softball Association. I have served as the President and Vice President of these boards. For 13 years I feel I have been a positive influence on the children that I have coached on either the baseball or softball fields, in peewee football and even the basketball court.
