Personal Message

My name is Janai Gibson and I attend Red Lion Christian Academy in Bear, Delaware and will graduate in the class of 2019. I am a 5'10 Middle blocker/Outside hitter with a 9'6 jump touch that has a goal of continuing my volleyball career at the college level. Academically I am a distinguished honor roll student with a 4.4 GPA and an 1160 SAT. I also play club volleyball for Upward Stars Delaware (18U) and having been playing competitive club volleyball for over 5 years. Thank you for taking the time to review my athletic profile and game footage. I would appreciate any consideration for your 2019 recruiting class!

Volleyball has been extremely important to me and has contributed to my growth not only athletically, but also mentally and emotionally. I have learned things that I am sure I will be able to carry with me all through life. I've learned how to lead, work with others, and to communicate. I wish for my growth to continue by playing at the next level. I know if given the opportunity I will further develop my character and mental strength while I also become stronger, bigger, better, and faster. I will work extremely hard both on and off of the court. I will be sure to give full commitment to both my academics and my team. I hope you consider me as a potential asset for your program and I look forward to hearing from you!
