Quotables: “The day I committed to Florida Gulf Coast was the day after I first visited the school. There is a lake there near campus and I am a big wakeboarder! But mostly because I trust the great coaching staff. Growing up having a dad (UF football coach Urban Meyer) involved so heavily in sports was a big plus. I always seemed to be a little better athletically than other girls so my dad always made sure I had a challenge and I thank him for that. I would like to thank my mom, Shelley Meyer, my team and all of my coaches. Coach (Jeff) Reavis' contribution to my success is difficult to put into words right now.” — Gigi Meyer
“Gigi started out playing all boys sports about eight or nine years ago. She would wait for me to come home from work with a cap on, ready to play catch. Now, (Gigi) is part of a great Buchholz team that I think could go a long way (in the playoffs). She is going to have a great life, with or without volleyball, and as for right now, (FGCU) is a better place now that it will have Gigi Meyer.” — Urban Meyer
“(FGCU coach Dave Nichols) knows that she is going to be able to step in and run the team's offense beginning with day one.” — Jeff Reavis
