Age:     17
Sport:   Volleyball
Level:   NCAA Division I Signee,
             Canadian Junior National Team

1. Give us a brief overview of your development as a volley ball player.

I started playing volleyball competitively when I was 14.  I did track and basketball growing up and a couple of summer volleyball camps.  I've always been able to jump really high; that's what drew me to volleyball.  I'm one of the shortest girls on the team, really small for a hitter.   I made the Junior Canadian National Team because I can jump.

2. What are you aspiring to as a volleyball player? 

I'm playing NCAA Division I for LaSalle University in Philadelphia.  I'm looking to play pro volleyball after I graduate in 2020.  There aren't any professional women's league in North America; so I'd have to play in Europe.  I'd love to play in an Olympic Games.  

3.  You've only been playing volleyball for three or four years so far.  What is your most memorable moment in your volleyball career thus far?

I broke a girl's nose with a really good hit straight down the line at Provincials this year.  That was pretty cool.

4. Have you done strength & conditioning before?  How has training with Coach Nick been different from past training?
I've trained mostly on my own and briefly at a couple other places in town.  Since I started at the Athlete Factory I've gained 15 pounds of muscle. I started training at the Athlete Factory in December after my surgery. I tore my meniscus and spent some time away from training for a couple months before and after my surgery this fall.

The Athlete Factory helped to get me back from my surgery - I'm jumping the same height I was before my injury and my training has definitely played a big role in that. 

5.  What's next for you?

I'm representing the Canadian Junior National Team in Ft. Lauderdale at the HP US Championships July 19-24.  Then I'm heading to LaSalle University to play my first year of NCAA volleyball.  Until then, I'll be training.

Good Luck Devin!
