Dez Avallone had a chance to be a hero, just like her dad.
She already had a double, two singles and four RBIs for West Brunswick in its conference softball game April 20 against North Brunswick.
Dez’s father, Randall Avallone, is a warrant officer with the United States Army, serving in Afghanistan. He is a hero to our country. This evening, daughter Dez, in a smaller way, was a hero to her West Brunswick teammates.
