Individuals who have worked tirelessly to better themselves using the strategies/tools/skills they have learned and implementing them into their everyday life, both on and off the court.
“I’ve only been working with Ray for a few months and I can already see improvement in my game, mentally and physically. Ray does such a great job pushing me and encouraging me to reach my full potential. He is truly confident in my ability to become a better player which boosts my confidence and gives me motivation to become better. I wish I had started training with Ray sooner, but I’m thankful for all that he has helped me accomplish so far.”
- Grace Gentry
The character of this young lady, is truly in her name! Grace is courteous, polite and pleasant. Though quiet, reserved and shy, she has a wealth of knowledge about Volleyball and is only limited by her lack of belief in herself! She has grown both physically and mentally and as it’s rewarding as her Coach and Trainer to see her step outside her comfort zone, to explore new positions and approach the game with an open mind. Once Grace gets out her own way, implements Grayhound’s Philosophy (“Feel it, Fix it!”) and applies Coach Ray’s 3 C’s (Communication, Confidence, Consistency), she will become one of, if not the best player on her team! Proud of you Grace! And this is an honor for me, as much as I hope it is for you! Congrats!

"Coach Ray has helped me grow athletically in every way possible. He has helped me grow my IQ, strength and mentality as a volleyball athlete. I wish I would have started training with him a lot sooner. He is truly one of the best coaches I have ever had!"

There are few humans that would sacrifice sleep by getting up at 3:30am and drive almost an hour to train…all before going to school. Well, Karla is that human! She even drags her little sister Emily along, who if continues will soon be a Grayhound Honorable Mention! Karla is serious about her craft, passionate, dedicated, committed, and has come a long way in her growth and development in a short period of time. Karla has only been training with me for about 1 year but in that time has shown that she is willing to do whatever it takes to play at the next level, and Grayhounds will do everything in our power to make that happen. Prior to training with me, she never considered the idea nor thought it possible to play Volleyball in college. After intense Mental toughness, Mindset and Mindfulness training, her confidence has soared and she is ready to entertain conversation with colleges who see her gift and willing to support her through this journey. It is my pleasure to announce Karla as our first ever 2023, Grayhound Player of the Month.
