December 8, 2021 — (LaFayette, GA): LaFayette High School senior and twice-named Region Player of the Year Colby Charland has signed with the UAH Chargers volleyball team.
A 4-year starter for the LHS Ramblers, Colby led that team to a record of 173 wins – 30 losses, 3 Region Championships, as well as 1 Sweet Sixteen, 1 Final Four, and 2 Elite Eight finishes in Georgia high school state volleyball championships.
Colby is also a well-known and established star player for Georgia Adrenaline Volleyball Club, having played in the club’s premiere 18s team since she was in middle school.
“Colby started playing for me when she was 13 years old,” states Club Director Lisa White Davis. “I fell in love with her and her family years ago! She was picked up with my national team and got her first debut when she went in and blocked a 6’2” power hitter from Chicago.”
“I have always seen myself in Colby because she is the kind of player I was… hungry! She is a silent leader who leads by example and is a true role model to younger players that follow her. Colby is beautiful inside and out, and I knew the first time I put my eyes on her that she would succeed in ALL she did.”
“Just as Colby grew up playing for me, I grew in love with her talent, personality, commitment, motivation, and inner beauty. Players like Colby Charland are few and far between, and God truly blessed my life when he placed Colby in it. This world is a better place and the game of volleyball is more exciting with ‘Baby Girl’ (a.k.a. Colby) around! I have always been and always will be a Colby Charland fan! I am SO honored to have coached her… University of Alabama at Huntsville is one lucky college to have her!”
White Davis says of her star setter, “I love u Colby Charland and I am BEYOND PROUD of u!”
