Dillon Collett has been named CCAA Player of the Month !!
Dillon Collett, VIU Mariners, 5th year, Right side attacker has put together a number of huge weekends statistically as well as with his ability to lead on and off the court this season. Dillon has been able to use his 5 years of PACWEST volleyball experience to put together some fabulous all round matches over the season thus far. He has been an extremely valuable asset for the Mariners on both sides of the ball this Season.
Currently, in the PACWEST, Dillon is in the Top 10 in every offensive and defensive category in the league. He is 2nd in Total Offense, 4th in Kills, 6th in Aces, 7th in Blocks, and 10th in Digs. These amazing results have resulted in two PACWEST Player of the Week Awards - Week 1 and Week 4. Dillon’s combined efforts both defensively, offensively and his positive on and off court veteran leadership has helped lead the Mariners to 3 wins in their last 4 matches.
His stats speak for themselves to the complete player he has become but, even more valuable than his stats is his strong leadership and his motivation with his younger Mariners teammates. With Collett’s strong first semester thus far, the Mariners hope to continue to grow under Dillon’s desire to make his last year in the PACWEST and CCAA a memorable one.
