"Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don't see it yourself" - Edmund Lee


This is part 1 of our Posts Every Athlete Should Check Out series which focuses on professionals and experts, keep an eye out next month for part 2 of the series which will highlight peers that are inspirational, share good information, and kick butt.


5. Geno Auriemma - UConn women's basketball coach

Winning over 987 games and 11 National Champions, Auriemma shares why he thinks recruiting enthusiastic kids is harder than ever. 

I appreciate this coach's message because being an athlete is the easiest time to show passion on the deepest level. It is that kind of passion you will be chasing your entire life.

4. Krystal and Curtis Jackson - Jackson Strength

I first found the Jacksons through their Instagram page JacksonStrength which led me to their podcast Indestructible Athlete which is perfect to listen to while working out or driving to the gym.

Finding social media platforms where Krystal and Curtis share their knowledge freely has been not only a great learning opportunity for myself but also a reminder of what I love about being athletically driven and willing to place importance on my health... my favorite advice so far, SLEEP!

3. Stanford Volleyball - 2016 National Champions

If you are in need of inspiration, look no further than the only team in the 2016 NCAA tournament to end their season with a win.  So many reasons they couldn't do it and yet they won it all. Instagram Stanford WVB & Twitter @StanfordWVB

2. Lindsay Wexler - Elevated Nutrition

Lindsay is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Board Certified Sports Dietitian and as well as being a regular on the VolleyBlog (check out her previous writings here) she works for the University of Nevada, Reno when she isn't off adventuring.  She has first-hand experience as well as science backing up her food suggestions for performance.  Lindsay has a great website full of recipes that can help anyone (even the non-chefs) eat for success.   Facebook  Twitter  Instagram



1. Kevin BarnetT & Jeremy "DJ" Roueche - The Net Live

The Net Live, in one word, a podcast.  In more than one word, a place where Kevin Barnett and Jeremy "DJ" Roueche host guests and have educated, complex conversations about volleyball.  He covers both womens and mens volleyball of all levels and is a great opportunity for anyone to learn from and catch up with what is going on in the volleyball world.  Sponsored by Volleyballmag.com I am impartial to the mascot challenge they host along side the actual NCAA tournament every November and December.  And being a former Oregon State volleyballer, I have to agree that the top spin serve the beaver has would most definitely be deadly.   Twitter @thenetLIVE     Facebook - The Net Live
