Each year, some collegiate teams produce volleyball video profiles of the
players on their team, so fans can get to know the bios and
backgrounds of the current players.
During preseason when new team members join a Division I
team, the Sports Information department will produce a
"Getting to Know The Players" series of volleyball videos where each
student athlete on the team introduces themselves, they talk about
where they are from and many give background information on how
and why they chose to attend that university or play for that coach.
Additionally, some players will be asked to share their expectations for
themselves, and/or for their team for the upcoming season.
Since many players are recruited from out-of-state these volleyball
video profiles allow larger numbers of team followers, family members
and fans to get to know each player faster.
This opportunity gives the fans their first chance to get to hear about
the accomplishments of new standout players or new recruits statistical
performances which include hits, digs and volleyball blocks per game
that they may have achieved on previous teams they were members of.
Similar to the volleyball video interviews, these profiles give players a
chance to talk about how they feel about their practices, about their
team and individual goals, about their relationship with the coaches and
coaching staff and also gives them a chance to share something
personal about themselves.
How do these types of profiles differ from interviews?
What differs from interviews is that profiles tend to be more personal
and focus mostly on the player where many interviews happen after the
game or in press conference situations and focus on a player giving their
feedback and insight on their team's or individual game performance.
