"This is another incredible day in the life of Bluefield College Volleyball.  To be able to add a recruit as with the experience and ability as Amber is an exciting thing for our program.  We are excited that Amber is joining the Lady Rams volleyball program",” said Bluefield College coach Brian Votaw, who is entering his second season as the head coach at Bluefield.


"Amber is an outstanding middle hitter who excels at her position.  She has been gifted with an incredible vertical leap and great blocking skills.  I'm also extremely impressed by her serve and it could turn out to be quite a weapon at the next level also."


"Amber is a MVP type player and even more importantly is an incredible young Christian woman.  She has prepared herself well by playing at an outstanding high school program at Evangel Christian while being coached by Tim Morrow.  She also played for an excellent club for 4 years with the Clash Club program.  I look forward to her contribution to our team and anticipate her making a huge impact in her freshman year," expressed Coach Votaw.


"I chose Bluefield College because when I visited the college I thought it was amazing.   Everything was so pretty, the campus the people.  I love the fact that everyone knows everybody and it is exactly the atmosphere I wanted to be in for the next four years.  The staff and faculty and volleyball team that I had the chance to meet were so sweet and caring.  Another important reason I chose to attend Bluefield College is the fact that it is a Baptist College.  I knew that I needed to continue to be in a Christian environment more that I needed to be in a secular college environment.  I believe that attending Bluefield College I will find friends that will also strengthen my walk with God."
