Steven Bunde

School: St. Francis.

Position: Receiver/linebacker.

Quotable: “It is so exciting, it is so great. Not only am I playing college football, but I am getting money for it. It is unbelievable. This one was a good fit for me because it was close to my whole family who I haven't been in touch with forever because they live up north. I really enjoyed the coaches that I talked to. It is a smaller school, which I like because it gives me more opportunity to play right away than some of these bigger schools. I really enjoyed everything I have done with these guys. I played three sports pretty much every year, got to interact with a lot of people. It was a lot of fun. — Steven Bunde.

Quotable: “It is really exciting. It is the feeling that everyone really dreams of. When you first start playing volleyball, that is your goal, you want to play as long as you possibly can. Coach at the beginning used to say you will make friends forever through volleyball. And I really have here. And I know I will at the next level too. I will cherish all the incredible memories we made.” — Kathryn Herrington.

The coaches and the players made me feel comfortable. What I will remember is the relationships that I formed here, especially this year with the team. I'm going to miss it.” — Megan Lee.
