Laura Stivrins Is A Middle Blocker And American Pro Volleyball Player

Laura Stivrins is a former Nebraska Husker middle blocker and is an American professional volleyball player in the Athletes Unlimited Professional League.

“They all have a lot of great input and when we were playing. Betty would have something to say. Something that I personally hadn’t heard,” Stivrins explained.

“What she sees versus what I see are two completely different things. It’s so nice to have that perspective and to have it be from someone who is genuine and trying to help me and teach me to be my best.”
