NJP has established a new feature called “Quick Set” where we ask NJ’s best high school volleyball players a quick set of questions and feature the answers daily on the site. Congratulations to the players selected and we appreciate the time taken to jump in and share their thoughts. (Players: Watch your IG messages for future invites) The questions will change throughout the season and we expect some players will repeat as being a part of this content in the future. Let’s applaud these role models for representing NJ’s best!

Tell us about your team this season.
Our team is very young this year, but we still have a lot of talent. We graduated most of our team last year, but we have had guys step up this year and bring us back where we need to be.
What big games are you looking forward to playing in this season?
I’m definitely looking forward to our game against Scotch Plains and Fair Lawn next week. I am also excited for the Shore conference and State games this year.
Which schools are your biggest league rivals?
Our biggest rival will always be Old Bridge, there is a lot of talent on both sides of the court, and it’s always a great game when we play each other.
Tell us about your opening game of the season!
Our opening game was against CBA on Monday. We played an all around great game as a team and even though CBA has some great players, we handled them well.
What’s the best part of being on your school’s volleyball team?
The best part of being on Southern is definitely the mindset everyone has. Everyone on the team has the same goal in mind, and we all work towards it everyday in practice. Also, we are more of a family than a team when we are in season. Everyone is there for one another whenever somebody needs something.
