Improve Your Volleyball: What makes you special?

Improve Your Volleyball interviews USC girls volleyball player Kendall 


When I think of what makes me special, I have to say that my family

is what makes me special.

My parents, Jane and Steve, have supported me in every way possible.

My older sister, Kelsey, has taught be to always be thankful for what I

have and to give all that I have in anything that I do.

My twin brother Stephen has taught me to relax and help keep a positive


Improve Your Volleyball: What accessories and/or equipment help you play your best?


My favorite piece of equipment that helps me play my best is the foam

roller in the training room. It helps me prepare for practice and takes

care of any soreness I might be feeling.

What pregame habits, rituals, or superstitions do you have to do before every game?


After a few ankle injuries my freshman year, I get my ankles taped

before every game.

My superstition is that I have to have my trainer tape my right foot and

then my left or else we have to start over.

 Improve Your Volleyball: What pregame habits, rituals, or superstitions do you have to do before every game?

My grandparents inspire me to play well in each volleyball match that

play. I am lucky to have grandparents from both sides of my family

living in Southern California and able to come to my games at USC.

They are the most supportive fans and I know they will be proud of

me now matter what. They love volleyball and I am so appreciative to

have them at my games.
