Paige Holland and Tori Bates Interview

After practice on Friday, I got a chance to sit down with Junior Setter Paige Holland and Sophomore Outside Hitter Tori Bates.  I'm actually awestruck by how humble both of these players are.  Bates is so unselfish as she discusses the team's offense and how she is integrated into the flow of things.  Holland, as she has been for three years, is the consummate professional and incredibly polite and thoughtful.

As always, I am so blessed and thankful that our players are accommodating to these type discussions.  Not only did we get in a great chat about setting, attacking, and SFA's prospects for the 2013 Southland title, but our 20 minute talk allowed us to stay inside and avoid the worst of a very welcome rainstorm that moved through Nacogdoches this afternoon.

Hopefully, this interview will help you get your game day fix.  Additionally, let us all hope that we have our full roster of players healthy going forward.  It was good to see Jacque Allen back on the court yesterday and it appears Bates won't be far behind. 

This would also be a good time to remind readers that the next LIVE CHAT room from the road will take place Saturday, September 28 at 2 PM as SFA takes on Northwestern State in Natchitoches.
