University of Tennessee, Knoxville volleyball hitter Carly Sahagian answers my volleyball interview questions. 



Improve Your Volleyball: What makes you special?

My friends and family are what make me special. They have given me nothing but courage and positive support that created opportunity after opportunity for me.  


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

My ankle braces keep me balanced and safe from injuries. Also, I can never have enough bobby pins to keep my hair out of my face.


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

Along with dancing in the locker room and a pep up speech from the coach, before every game I listen to my iPod that is set to shuffle and also I study my scouting report of our opponent.

I learned at a young age that superstitions don’t hold true for me. 


Improve Your Volleyball: Who or what inspires you to play well in each volleyball match that you play?

My mom, dad, and brother inspire me to play my best and hardest in each game.

My parents have supported me through everything that I have been through. My older brother is another role model that I look up to when it comes to volleyball and even in everyday life.

His confidence, strength, and energy he shows on the court come from playing with nothing but heart. As a volleyball player, I think heart is the most essential attribute to any game.
