I came to Coastal for a couple different reasons. First, the weather is really nice! But the main reason why I came is because of my volleyball coach, Jozsef Forman. A lot of coaches talk about only wanting to win a championship no matter what. However, he says it doesn’t matter to him if we win a championship, what matters to him is that we work hard and try to do our best. That attitude is what made me decide to come to Coastal.
