Good thing the A game is not on Tuesday, they would be playing it like 10:00 at night. Maybe the A game is at 8 so all the boys and girls bball teams at Webster can have practice first.

Could be. Wonder when the B vs BB state qualifier game will be then?

The B vs BB is going to be on Thursday at McQuaid. Don't forget that the kids are off on Thursday so to make it late on Wednesday doesn't hurt anyone.

Etan is the man! He has character, he's funny, a fantastic player and an all around great kid! (No, I'm not his mom or dad)

That is a strong prediction about Eastridge but with without Etan, Brighton does not have the same firepower and does not have any one to fill his shoes while hes gone

How about the Monroe County Division II next year?(Spencerport, Brockport, Hilton, Churchville Chili) What team will step up in that division and take over as a dominant force, and who will lead that team?

Obviously losing a player like Etan will drop Brighton down a bit. However, they have 5 sophomores on varsity now, and start 3. Their JV team won 15 games, and has 4 who play pace. They will clearly drop to middle of the pack losing a talent like Etan, but their future is pretty solid it seems. Their other outside is a player who does not get much recognition due to not playing pace. However, he is a sophomore, an all-county player, and will continue to improve. It will be interesting to see how they replace Etans all-around play and leadership. IF they can come close, they will be ok.
This post is not correct. Brighton starts 2 10th graders. They brought up 2 more for sectionals. There is not a single player on the Brighton JV on Pace or Victor. There are only 3 players in the entire program that play club at any level. Bennett at Pace and Soble and Batchu played Victor. Brighton will be down, way down next year but with Victor moving up they will have a chance. There will be a huge leadership vacuum next season.

This is my first post on this site, although I have followed it for quite some time. I guess the fact people are talking about our program is a mixed bag, good since we must be doing something right, and bad-since it puts us under the microscope. However, I felt like it was time to add my two cents about a few topics.

First, I agree with most of the posts here, Etan Bennett is one of the very best players in Section V. As his coach, I know he is one of the most talented players I have ever coached, and being biased, I think he should get player of the year recognition for what he has done for our team, and what he has done as a player. More importantly to me, he is a better human being. He is one of the hardest working and great individuals I have had the pleasure of coaching. I wish him the best in the future, and as a program, there is no way to replace an Etan Bennett.

I enjoy seeing other peoples points of view on volleyball in the county. Some I agree with, and some I do not, but they always seem to spark some good threads of conversation. However, there is always a fine line that is walked on this site, and that is how to discuss volleyball in the area in a positive light and at the same time not discuss individuals. In my eyes, when discussing individual players its always a tough call. While there is no firm answer, please keep in mind that these are 15-18 year old students who elected to play high school sports. They are not playing professionally and have not voluntarily signed up to be criticized and scrutinized. Many atheletes around the county bust their tails, work their hardest and should not be subject to evaluations of their games. It is true that it is a fact that some athletes are more talented than others, and that fact cannot be changed. Just be mindful that many athletes have to read these posts, and they should not have to be subject to negative comments about themselves.

That being said, our TEAM has 12 individuals on it. Every athlete has given everything they have had to our team goals. Each athlete has played a role and contributed to our success. Anudeep Batchu was singled out in an older post. Anudeep is an incredible student athlete. Anudeep plays his heart out, and gives everything he has everyday and loves the game of volleyball. I can say the same thing about every student on our team. We may not be the tallest, or most talented, or have the most club players on our team, but they come to work every day because everyone loves the game of volleyball.

We do not have many club players for many reasons, some do not want to pay the costs, some play other sports that get in the way, and some do other school activities that precludes them from playing club. That does not mean the kids who play scholastically do not love the game of volleyball. Obviously I am biased, but I will stand up for my kids every day of the week.

Some of the other posts are incorrect. I have had 3 sophmores on varsity since the start of the year. My outside, and setter have started all season, and both made all-county, and my third plays as a defensive specialist every game. I pulled two more sophmores up for sectionals. Also, I have 4 students who have played club, Etan played Pace. Mikey Asselin played a year of pace and Cory and Anudeep played Victor club. The JV team has a few freshman who played pace in middle school.

As a team, we will lose a lot when Etan graduates, as well as my other 5 seniors. I recognize that. It always tough to lose so many quality seniors and leaders. We will continue to work hard, to get more athletes into the program and compete to the best of our ability.

I am overly proud of what my kids have accomplished, and continue to be proud of the work that my kids do every day. I always say that I am blessed to coach where I coach because I have good volleyball players, but great kids.

Hope to see more great posts on this site and that it generates more interst in volleyball in the area! Good luck to everyone still playing, and I look forward to some great volleyball in the fall.

Coach Rosenbaums post is more of what is needed.
It should be ALWAYS be positive and pointing out what young student athletes are doing.
Brighton is playing Victor tonight in what could be a very good contest as the last match could have gone either way with Victor winning a very close and hard fought match. Victor is so deep and they have the best outside in the area. Brighton also has a pretty talented hitter as well. Two good solid varsity teams. Should be fun.

I love watching these videos so please don't take this wrong but as a coach I would deffinitly not want anyone posting videos of my team. It is such an advantage for other teams that are out of the area to scout your team. I have been searching all over for stuff on the team were playing tomorrow and if I had game videos to watch it would be like winning the lottery in my eyes. Just something to think about and I do understand that your intentions are good and who wouldn't want to watch this MCQ team on Video they are a great team and fun to watch.

I did think about that, but I believe the benefits are just overstated.  The difference has to be close to nothing due to the structure of the actual state tournament which gives coaching staffs ample time to watch one another.  I think the only way scouting of this fashion would help would be under the following conditions:

1.) The filmed team has one disproportionately good/bad blocker/hitter.
2.) The filmed team's coaching staff lazily never "spins the dial" and constantly submits the same lineup.
3.) The lineup in the footage predicts future lineups exactly.
4.) The un-filmed opponent of the filmed team can submit a lineup to take advantage of this predictability.

That's a lot of conditions to meet.  And even if everything works out for the unfilmed opponent, the benefits of seeing film ahead of time go away after one set.

Yes, the films could be used instead of scouting. But getting volleyball videos out there for family, friends, players and fans is well worth it. Also, it is an easy way for recruiters to see the action as well and I know of at least two out of town college coaches that have watched the videos.

Game tape is not a big thing at all. There is no secrecy in it. I am pretty sure that collegiate coaches freely give their game tapes to opposing coaches if they are asked. Practices on the other hand would be a no no.
