Dear Coaches and Colleges,
My name is Will Spann and I am from San Diego, California. I am 17 years old and a Junior in high school. I currently play club at Coast Volleyball Club where I am a Middle-Blocker for Fiapo 17-1s. I have played volleyball for about 4 years now, first starting on Coast 14-1s and then to the 15-1s and 16-1s teams. I go to school at La Jolla High School where I have also played for the Men’s Varsity Volleyball team for two years now. Over the summer of 2020, I made the USA Volleyball High Performance A2 group.
I enjoy school a lot and see the importance of academics when it comes to entering the next chapters of my life. This year I am taking 2 AP courses, 2 Honors courses, and 1 Mesa College course. I am proud to say I ended my Junior year Semester 1 with a 4.8 GPA . I will be taking the SAT and ACT at the beginning of the spring of 2021.
Over the summer, I worked at my dad's remodeling and construction company to learn his industry and witness first hand how to run a business. I can now estimate job sites, measure houses, and create 3D images and blueprints of projects. I was also able to learn important people skills and how to navigate conversations with clients, co-workers, and employers. I'm beginning to start working again by assisting the appliances and sales department. Free tutoring is also another endeavor I'm beginning to start.
For several years, it has been my ultimate goal to play volleyball in college. The competition living in Southern California is intense, so I have created an apt schedule to become the best player I can hope to be. By going to a private trainer for the past 3 years several times a week, I have been able to grow as an athlete and stay in shape for the sport. Training and practicing for me does not stop there. In addition to this, I go to weekly one-on-one lessons to grow outside of traditional practices. I truly believe that putting in the most effort, the most time, and the most dedication will be the driving force of my success.
