Paulino: My favorite athlete is former university of texas volleyball player, Cat McCoy. She was a Ds / Libero which was the position I originally started out as. Watching her on the court made me realize she was my favorite because of how she was always cheering for her teammates and consistently had a positive attitude and mindset.

Paulino: Before a game my favorite meal would be a chicken pesto panini and a paradise point smoothie from tropical smoothie cafe.

Paulino: Off the court I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I also love to spend time outdoors especially at the beach.
VYPE: What's your favorite subject in school?

VYPE: What is the one memory from the game you'll never forget playing volleyball?
Paulino: One memory that I will never forget is playing our rival school, travis high school. The game went to five sets and all of the sets we were fighting and working very hard to compete and win. The student section had lots of energy and was cheering loudly for us. This game was the most intense game of the season and beating them made us come together as a team while having fun.
