Long Beach State Assistant Volleyball Coach 1986 - 2008
"Throughout her youth, Debbie Green spent her spare moments playing
volleyball, practicing it endlessly, performing in hundreds of matches,
forfeiting her social life so she could perfect her skills as a setter."

Monday the only day I'd take off."
