Ken Wunderley profiles Upper St. Clair girls volleyball star Samantha Amos. Read his story below.
Samantha Amos was playing tennis when she first experienced the sport of volleyball.
"My neighbor was Troy Murphy," said Amos, referring to a former setter for the Upper St. Clair boys volleyball team. "I saw him hitting a volleyball off the side of his house all the time. He turned me on to the sport of volleyball. He taught me how to hit and pass. I might still be playing tennis today if I never met Troy."
Amos and her younger sister Alex had been playing doubles tennis at the time she was introduced to volleyball.
"I started playing tennis when I was 7," Samantha Amos said. "I didn't start playing volleyball until I was 11 or 12."
