Hi Coach Houser,
I just wanted to say thankyou. This camp the past week has been one of the greatest times I've had in a really long time. I was with people I loved and made so many memories with people I really care about and do the same for me as well. You guys made me work hard, smile&laugh, and opened my eyes to a world to only show me that it's only up to me to help myself and our team. We are our own little Fam[ily] and i think this season is going to be absolutely incredible. I'm excited for the seniors to shine and hope to help them go out with a bang. Volleyball has always been my favorite sport, it makes me feel alive and I still get the goosebumps every time I hit the floor.  I learned alot in a week and I told the team tonight a suggestion for our shirts. St. Marys Volleyball, TOGETHER we can. Ya like it? Thanks again, I hope Y'ALL can come back soon, ya hear ;) just kidding.  Thanks for being a coach&friend. I couldn't forget any of you guys if I tried.

Lunch was a time to just act normal..... whatever that is!
