Chris Birch begins his third season as team manager and statistician for the Nittany Lion men's volleyball team. He runs the in-match Data Volley statistical program.
A junior history major, Birch is a graduate of Exeter Township High School in Reading, Pa. He was a setter and libero on the 2006 Berks County Championship squad and was voted to play in the Berks County Senior All-Star match. Birch was also a member of the Red Rose club program.
"Every team needs someone like Chris. His knowledge of DataVolley and attention to detail makes little things happen for the team and staff. Chris has a great analytical mind and will no doubt make a great coach someday," said Pavlik.
