There have been many talented volleyball players who have worn the Skipper uniform over
the years, but few accomplished what Allison Mattox did in her career.
How about being a two-time All-American, winning regional and national player of the year honors and leading her squad to a national championship?
“My experience playing volleyball and studying at SC4 were truly amazing,” Mattox said. “The relationships that were formed with teammates and the coaches are ones that will last a lifetime.
“For me, staying close to home those two years and working with some of the best coaches and players in the nation are what has shaped me into the person I am today.
“Thanks to all the coaches – Terry (Gamble), Ray (Cornwell), Becky (Romberg) — for giving me the push I needed sometimes to be better than I thought I could ever be as a player and a person.”
Mattox, a Marysville High School graduate, earned NJCAA First Team All-American honors in 2003 and 2004. The 2004 team won the national title and has been inducted into the SC4 and Port Huron Sports Hall of Fames.
The dominating hitter continued her playing career at Middle Tennessee State University.
Mattox currently lives in West Palm Beach, Florida.
