Coaching Philosophy

To provide student athletes with the opportunity to be successful. To teach them how to be productive as team members and learn how to be competitive. I believe in training technique and having a good foundation to the game. I want to share with athletes the passion that I have for the game and the love of competing. I am very competitive and love to win, but even more I like to see the athletes grow not only in their volleyball skills, but as individuals and as teammates. I want players to know what success feels like, but also to be able to learn from defeat and know that if they gave 100%, that they have still won. I want to help push athletes to accomplish beyond what they thought was possible - and to achieve and be the person they were meant to be.

As a coaching staff, our goal is to do what is best for kids. We believe that all athletes improve their athletic skills as well as their life skills. We have high expectations and set high standards for the volleyball program at Allen High School. The love for the sport and the dedication displayed by the coaches and athletes contributes to the success the Allen Eagle Volleyball Program has established.
