Rising Star: Morghan Gray

Morghan Gray on her way to stardom

Morghan Gray lives her life by a Thomas Edison quote.

"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up, the most certain way to succeed is just to try one more time."

The Hayfield senior softball player has overcome three foot surgeries during her playing career.

But she came back stronger than ever becoming a leader for the Hawks.

Besides her school work and commitments to softball, Morghan somehow finds time to work at the Greenspring Retirement Community in Springfield.

She has worked over a thousand hours to earn a $10,000 college scholarship, which she will use at the University of South Florida.

As ABC7 sports reporter Scott Abraham shows us Morghan won't let adversity get in the way of her dreams. Click on the video above for the complete story.
