Metro VBC Will Burkett - South Region Director - 2021
“It remains an honor and privilege to serve as Metro’s South Region Director. Last year, when our season was cut short, Metro stepped up and continued to connect with our players with virtual workouts and regular team check-ins! Our reality may have shifted but our love for the game and our players stayed strong! We have GREAT coaches who know the game and are truly committed to their teams, players and our growing Metro family.  I’m excited to be a part of this season and the opportunity to add to the legacy that is Metro Volleyball. Go Metro! (You know!!!)”
