The Stinger Staff recently sat down with varsity volleyball player Josie Miller, who just finished her sophomore season,  to talk about her future volleyball career. Miller has been offered a scholarship to play sand volleyball at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth.

The NCAA began counting sand volleyball as a championship sport in 2015, TCU’s inaugural season. While the Rockwall volleyball players have been known to send players to compete in the collegiate ranks in the past, Josie is just the second to play sand volleyball for an NCAA program. Bailey Smith plays for Louisiana-Monroe, though Miller will be the first to play for a Big 12 program.

Q: How long have you been playing volleyball and how old were you when you started?

A: I have been playing volleyball since I was in 5th grade.

Q: What made you want to start playing volleyball?

A: I started playing volleyball to meet new people and I have met so many new people.

Q: Who inspired you to play?

A: I remember going to watch high school volleyball games and that is when I decided that volleyball was something that I wanted to try.

Q: Do you see yourself playing volleyball in the future?

A: I really enjoy volleyball and it’s something I will definitely be doing in the future.

Q: Tell us about your plans. 

A: I am verbally committed to play beach volleyball for TCU.

Q: What makes you want to go to TCU other than playing for them?

A: It’s a smaller school but has a great reputation and a recognizable name.

Q: What’s something you look forward to while playing for them?

A: Traveling to new places and meeting new people!

 

With two years remaining in her high school career, Miller’s college dreams will have to wait. For now, she looks forward to the fall, when she and her fellow Jacket classmates head back to the court to defend their district title.
