Wilson ready to a storm in Blacktown starting on Sunday
SOFTBALL: "I didn't expect to have come this far this quickly."
These were the words from Gladstone Softball Association young gun Josh Wilson on Sunday's Under-14 Boys' Regional Softball Championship at Blacktown, New South Wales.
Wilson's Queensland Storm lost game one on Sunday to NSW Metro Orange 11-10 and are currently in action against South Australia.
Wilson, 13, has been playing softball for just three years.
"To represent Queensland is an honour and look forward to playing against the other Queensland side, Queensland Thunder, as it's an intrastate rivalry," Wilson said.
"I'm close mates with some of their players and we know how each other play."
Wilson considers himself a leader who likes to use his voice and set examples with his actions.

"I have a good understanding of the game and I can step up when needed," he said.
His best strength is his fielding as mainly a catcher, short stop and second base.
"I'm quick over the field and am the quickest in the team," Wilson said.
He was selected in the first phase of three camps back in May and he believed his crisp fielding skills got him the nod for selection in the Maroons' team.
"There were two other training camps in October and in December," Wilson said.
"Games are seven innings in length or 90 minutes, whichever of these comes first," Wilson said.
