VYPE: How long have you been playing volleyball and how did you get your start?

Wells: I've been playing football since I was 3. My momma finally decided to sign me up for the little league team and I've been playing ever since.

VYPE: Who's your favorite athlete and why?

Wells: My favorite athlete is Rob Gronkowski. I've always been big but I wanted to score touchdowns as well so when I saw Gronk on TV I knew I wanted to be like that lol.

VYPE: What's your pre-game meal? Routine?

Wells: We have different pre game meals as a team but before every game I make it clear to myself nobody has worked harder than me and nobody will outwork me... it's my time to be great.

VYPE: Off the field, what is your favorite thing to do?

Wells: I like to hang out with my friends a lot because we do different stuff, just creating memories.

VYPE: What's your favorite subject in school?

Wells: My favorite subject is math.

VYPE: What is the one memory from the game you'll never forget playing volleyball?

Wells: A memory I'll never forget just happened this past game against Ridge Point. Our defense got a stop late in the 4th quarter and the offense made a scoring drive to put the score to 28-20. Ridge Point had time left on the clock and they scored with no time left making the score 28-26 and our defense had to make one stop. That was the loudest I've ever heard our crowd. When the defense made the stop everybody went crazy and it was just a good win.
