Coach Comments: Brent is the quarterback of the team. As setter, he controls the flow of the offense and does well at feeding the hot hand. Brent handled well the hard transition from football to volleyball, which require different types of muscles and explosiveness. He really dedicated himself in the off season and early in the season to hopefully help the team make another run in the state championships. He has a high volleyball knowledge and it helps him stay a set or two ahead of the other team. A four-year letter winner in volleyball, 2-year captain, and played football 4 years as well, earning two varsity letters.  Brent was a class representative and member of the homecoming court.

Coach Name: Becahi Head Coach Tim Sledz

Players Encouraging Words to Teammates: “This year was going to be “it”, “the one”; this was supposed to be the year to prove them all wrong and become the champs that we prepared for all these years. I can’t help but to feel like we got robbed out of one of the biggest moments of our lives, and I wish this book had a different ending. One thing I know is that I have learned so much about myself, friendships, and life these past three seasons and I owe it all to each of you. Thank you all for some of the best times of my life. It’s been real!”  Brent
