2020 Spring Team Previews: Boys Volleyball

Posted on: April 21, 2020

Prior to the COVID-19 shutdown, we asked each of our head coaches to take a few minutes to preview the seasons, while also sharing how they’ve stayed engaged with their teams. In the fourth installment of a seven-part series, boys volleyball head coach Jim Siciliano shares his thoughts.

2020 Varsity Roster

Top returning players
• Senior OH Jake Pearson (HM All-ECC)
• Sophomore S/OH Jacob Downs (HM All-ECC)

Promising newcomers
• Senior RS Will Nagel
• Senior MH Jerome Washika
• Freshman Dalton Bauserman
• Freshman Dominic Greico

Coach Siciliano’s thoughts
“I had a lot of hope for this season as we have 11 Seniors (all of which have played before in the program). This is also the saddest part of what’s going on because they’re not able to have a senior season. We could have done pretty well this year. I've only had one other season before with so many seniors.”

Coach Siciliano Q&A
How are you staying in touch with your players during this time?
“I'm trying to communicate with the players through email and final forms. It’s hard because I have so many seniors (most of them are working now so that doesn't leave much time to do much in terms of virtual meetings). My hope is that I can still try to set up some virtual meetings with them in the coming weeks. I also have them working with ProForce in terms of working out and conditioning in the hopes that we can still have an abbreviated season.”

Share something fun you've done/have planned with your players virtually.
“I’m going to try and set up some virtual meetings so we can try to workout together. I would love to get something together that involves practicing skills, but it’s tough since we’re a true team sport (we can't do too many things individually).”
