Former Florida volleyball player Jane Collymore (Seattle, Wash.) has built up a solid resume on the volleyball court, including time spent with the U.S. Women’s National Volleyball Team since May 2005. However, her resume has been bridging into more areas than just on the volleyball court in recent years.

Collymore is a three-time American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-American while playing at the University of Florida. As a senior in 2005, she was named AVCA All-America First Team and repeated her junior accomplishment of being named Southeastern Conference Player of the Year. By the time she ended her career with the Gators, she had over 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs and ranked among the top 10 in 51 different statistical categories in Florida’s records book.

After her collegiate career, Collymore donned the red, white and blue of Team USA and played in three tournaments in 2006 including the Pan American Cup, FIVB World Grand Prix and TV Azteca Cup in Mexico. She totaled 10 points versus Brazil during the Pan American Cup, then added nine points in a second meeting against Brazil during the 2006 FIVB World Grand Prix. Collymore was the prime American offensive threat at the TV Azteca Cup, where she was the second leading scorer among all players in the tournament with 77 points, including double-figure scoring in all five matches and a 23-point effort against Peru.
