VYPE 411: McKinney Boyd's Avery Calame
Avery Calame recently won the DFW Volleyball Preseason Outside Hitter of the Year Poll. VYPE caught up with Calame for the 411 on the star from McKinney Boyd.
VYPE: How long have you been playing Volleyball and how did you get your start?
Calame: I've been playing volleyball for about 9 years now. I started when a few girls at my school wanted to make a PSA volleyball team. (I've been playing at Madfrog Volleyball all of my club years)
VYPE: Go-to pregame meal? Routine?
Calame: My go to pregame meal is definitely pasta salad. During high school I'm routine on game day consisted of me going to class, going home and eating/doing homework, going to serve and pass, and then playing!
VYPE: Favorite subject in school?
Calame: My favorite subject in school I would say is English.
VYPE: What's your biggest strength? Or What do You Bring to Your Team?
Calame: In my opinion my biggest strength is the fact that I am left handed hitting on the left side, I feel like that gives the blockers and defense a different look than the typical right handed outside.
VYPE: Off the field, what is your favorite thing to do?
Calame: When I'm not playing volleyball I like to hangout with friends, go fishing, and play/watch my little brothers!VYPE: What has been your greatest HS memory so far?
Calame: My greatest high school memory so far is definitely when my freshman year we (Mckinney Boyd) beat our rivals (Mckinney High) in 5 sets with the 5th set being 15-13!
