Recapping Call the Coach
Thank you to LC and others for helping me out since I had another commitment Monday night
thought it best to bring all the info over to one place.
someone asked about a replay. I know they do it for football but don't believe they have done it for volleyball. You could call the radio station to request that they do. 296-2420.
From the Show
Scott: On the Jade Vorster graduating early rumors and about her not returning for senior year
Shoji: not true . Will play senior year as grad student Likes this present lineup.Realizes that some of the other players would like to play more and he tries to get them in whenever he can.
Caller: wants to know why Hartong set so many times at end of set 4 against AZ.
Dave: said even his sons get on him about going to Hartong too many times but in his opinion you go to your best player in crunch time.
About this week's tournament.
Shoji: Good road test.WSU threw in a lot of extras to help out UH financially for this trip.
About recruiting said they have 3 commits for next year, good chance of getting a 4th
Not done with 2014 yet:
Cindy: Shoji can't discuss the recruits until they sign in November but ...
From LC and other sources: likely OH 6'2" Kalei Greeley
MB 6'2" Emily Maglio
L 5'8" Savannah Kahakai
4th ? L 5-9 Gianna Guinasso (although I thought she was sand, and likely a walk-on)
From Cubicle: There seems to be have a friendly rivalry with chris lamb, the coach of wichita st. that might explain why they come to hawaii so frequently. at the end of the show, shoji mentioned that he and lamb were texting each other... lamb saying that if his teams beats hawaii, they could crack the top 25... and shoji texting back there was no chance! haha ...
Caller asked something about losses that he will always remember and he replied one to Michigan State (Cindy 1995 ending an undefeated season after they were up 2-0) and one to LBSU (Cindy; guess he's thinking 1989 when UH was hosting the final four)
Says that Hartong will probably get a crack at the USA team but needs more experience that she will get playing pro,doesn't see her in the 2016 Olympics.
Shoji: talked to Kanani about the USA team as a libero,sounded like she would be up for it.
On recruiting: Ah Mow handles local kids,Scott has the mainland.
LC: Apparently Scott does all the work. Dave not all that involved until Scott makes recommendations to Dave who then takes a look see and makes final decision.
Cindy: don't believe that to be completely true since Shoji does go to things like Davis, JOs to scout.
