January 28, 2018. "I can tell you that watching the girls on this current team, you can tell they’ve been coached by you. They are smart on the court and they know how to get a side out when it’s crucial. It stands out. So thanks again for all you’ve done for them! What can I say, you’re the best. Actually I say it ALOT. "
May 5, 2016. "Thank YOU for all you have done to help make this a season to remember! It’s unbelievable how far they have come as a team. These girls have learned so much from you. My daughter already misses being out there with her team! She would like to get back into the gym very soon!"
February 9, 2016. "A few of the parents were commenting on how much my daughter's teammate's game has improved (her timing, her patience waiting on the ball, her not "palming" the ball) and someone said that she had been working with you. I said "well that explains it"! It's unbelievable how much she has improved. Excellent work, coach! You're amazing!!"
July 30, 2015 "No matter what lies ahead, most of her positive and happy volleyball memories are with u. Thank you for being a great mentor and role model for my baby!!"
April 15, 2013. My daughter attended the hitting clinic last Tuesday night. I thought that the instruction you provided at the clinic was excellent. In fact, I wrote down the key points that you taught as soon as I got home, and I have been working with my daughter on what you taught that night!!
December 21, 2012. I just wanted to let
you know that I verbally committed today! I wanted to say
thank you for all the help along the way. I would not be
half the player I was without your coaching and continued
support! Thank you so much again, it means the world to me
:) I would also love it if you came to my signing if you
want to and can make it... It will be sometime in January
but I don't know the exact date yet, I'll let you know when
we schedule it!!

of fresh air. Just wanted to say thanks again."
2010. "My daughter has a very
special place for you in her heart. You're blessed w/ a natural gift of
knowing how to coach & teach teenagers. You're a legend that will never be
forgotten. Thank you & your assistants for an amazing season."
February 20, 2010. "Tom:
I am so thankful that you and your staff are filling the
need to start our 'future' volleyball stars earlier with the
VIP training. I hope
that you continue this program throughout the year.
Just think of the players the Roanoke area will produce if
we continue to start their exposure to correct technique in
elementary school, instead of middle school."
24, 2009. "My daughter wanted me to
tell you that she loves you and loves working with you.
Another mom and I were watching your last game at the
Bid Tournament and she commented
on how great you are at building a "team" as well as the
individual player. Keep on doing what you do best - the
volleyball world is blessed to have an asset like you in
it!! Yes, there is more than just instruction!
"You have been a great POSITIVE help for my daughter.
We all love your coaching style! You definitely have a

have spent with Morgan teaching her about volleyball , a
good attitude, team building & the importance of
character. She listens to every word. Your experience as a
teacher, coach, parent & writer have all proved to be great
life lessons that kids need to hear today (not just from the parents)."

My daughter has still
not stopped talking about you, Maggie, Devyn, Scott,
etc.....She absolutely loved the camp at
Red Lion! My daughter learned so much
in such a short period of time thanks to your camp and thank
you for your site with so much information. I hope you
enjoyed your trip enough to consider coming again!
Your kindnesses and your commitment to our girls and to the
sport are and were so very much appreciated. I'm sorry
I didn't get an opportunity to meet any of you in person to
welcome you. I'm sure you have received many replies
by now. Thank you again for blessing us in such an awesome way. Our best
to you, your assistants, your team and your family.
November 2, 2006. I
can't tell you how much I appreciate your email reply.
It really did help to calm the panic I have been
feeling! Thank you for giving me the information
to get started. We will definitely contact you and let
you know how things turn out! I also wanted to
tell you how much I appreciate the articles on your
website. Reading your articles really helped
me keep things in perspective. I will absolutely
recommend it to all the parents on the Varsity and JV
teams. Thanks again for taking so much time to help us.
Your love of kids and volleyball is evident from your
website and your articles. I can't get over how much
time you took just to reply to me. A complete stranger!
Your players & parents are very lucky to have you as
