            10/25/2015 - College PREP - Marlborough (Boston), MA - Amber is a 2017 Outside. Amber is a talented 6 rotation player that can play multiple positions. She showed good movements in defense and passing, creating good platform location and creating a good angle when passing outside her body. While hitting she has a good vertical, creating her contact point higher than most blocks making it easy for her to score points and also being able to run multiple plays. Right now her focus is creating a bigger block by penetrating more and forcing her block back into the court, while hitting she has been getting a bigger backswing to even have a higher touch on contact. Amber will be a great addition to the college of her choosing.
            10/19/2014 - College PREP - Milton (Boston), MA - Amber has an impressive demeanor on the court and good potential at the next level. She is still working on becoming a complete player by focusing on not only the attacking and blocking skills of her position as a middle but Amber is getting more exposure to passing, defense and stabilizing her serving. She has good court presence and moves well across the net. She penetrates well on the block. As an attacker she generates good power and still has a ton of growth that can happen there. She jumps well and has some great tools that make her a threat at her position. Amber has a great attitude and is dedicated to the process of improving and being the best she can. Her ceiling is high and and has yet to reach all of the potential that she has.
            12/27/2013 - Under Armour Volleyball Factory Select Training & Competition - Very talented player that is young and poised to have a break out year for volleyball. Saw a huge improvement from day one to the final day with Amber. Her timing and contact on middle attack became more consistent and saw her confidence begin to rise. Amber can contact at a higher level on the attack but would like to see more reps running a fast offense. Continued work on blocking movement across the net and penetration over the net should be a focus in her development. Would like to see her build more strength in the weight room and work on speed and lateral movement along the net.
            10/27/2013 - College PREP - Milton (Boston), MA - Amber is a young athlete with a good technical ceiling. She possess a good size for setters position and would like to follow her growth as a middle hitter. Amber will develop consistency with more game play and technical training. Would like to see her work on setters posture and footwork. She has her hands at a good starting point with decent location and tempo of sets. A young player with athleticism and upside, she will be one to follow.
