Interview with Seniors: MB Les Jackson & DS Amanda Rister

Last Thursday at the conclusion of afternoon practice, I got a chance to chat with this years' Senior class.  Les Jackson and Amanda Rister have played all over the court during their college years but look poised to settle into more definitive roles their last year on campus. Jackson may very well see more court time in 2013 than in any of her previous years at SFA.  Currently, she projects as one of the main middle blockers for Debbie Humphreys squad.   Rister moves off the backup setter position to more of a defensive and serving specialist for 2013.

Hit the link below to hear our conversation which includes everything from Les' thoughts on being the last one standing from the 2010 recruiting class, Amanda's take on what makes a good serve, as well as a little behind the scenes info about life on the road which has at times included the making of team music video parodies.  Les also clues us in to the origin of the now semi-famous Soft Smile Saturdays.

I hope you enjoy listening to the conversation and much as I did talking with two athletes that always represent SFA Volleyball in such a positive light.  Next Up for this Thursday:  A sit down with back row standouts: Libero OJ Olson and DS Janet Hilll will be the focus of this week's interviews.
