Sandy Hoffman | Head Coach | Women’s Volleyball | Bentley University

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

One who loves to compete, loves to workout and loves to play volleyball. One who is smart and driven to do well in everything.

Could you give an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?

Our best teams have had leaders who lead by example and who care about the program and the team as much as they care about their own personal achievements. One of our best teams had a leader who excelled by being in the best physical shape she could be in. She earned a starting spot from hard work and determination, and played with such confidence, even though she was never recognized as one of the best in terms of records, stats, all conference accolades etc. She made everyone else better!
