Husker coaches recognize Reeves

If Tiani Reeves had her way, she would start her University of Nebraska career tomorrow.

Her future coaches might not mind that plan, either, as they presented her with the Outstanding Player award after her performance at the Huskers’ individual camp in mid-July.

Reeves spent three days and three nights in Lincoln, training alongside a group of talented prospects.

The Gothenburg senior-to-be felt she played at a high level but didn’t see the award coming.

“The girls I was playing with were all (college) recruits,” Reeves said. “To be one of the best ones out of them was kind of crazy. I wasn’t expecting it at all.”

The award and encouraging reviews from the Husker coaching staff boosted Reeve’s confidence on the court.

Off the court, the experience in Lincoln was just as positive. Reeves roomed with another Husker volleyball commit and enjoyed getting to know some of her future teammates better.

“I had so much fun even though I was in the gym most of the time,” Reeves said.

Reeves was back in the gym last week at a camp in Ogallala with her high school teammates. Although she’s anxious to start her days as a Husker, she has something she would like to accomplish in her final year as a Swede.

“I think we need to go to state,” Reeves said.
