Another year has passed, yet again so fast, and I have arrived in Oklahoma City this year for the AVCA Convention and Final Four. It’s hard to believe that 7 years ago I was in Sacramento for my first Convention, without a job, and unaware of where life would lead. Some personal sacrifices, especially financially, made for the cross country journey to Sacramento, but it benefited greatly.
This year I embark on my fifth presentation at the AVCA for First Time Attendees. My new bride will accompany me over the weekend for some great volleyball. I work under another hall of fame head coach. Former players that I coached and recruited in college are now attending Convention to learn more about this crazy busy. And my volleyball community continues to expand, although narrow in many ways too.
Just as excited as I was 7 years ago to learn how this week will continue to broaden my volleyball horizons. I am fortunate to do what I love and more fortunate to experience it with the one I love. Just makes me want to jump for joy 😉
