Entering the 2012 season with high expectations, the Warren County High School volleyball team got some added instruction this week as Tennessee Tech coach John Blair visited Charlie Dalton Gym to teach a three-day camp.For the eighth straight year, coach Franklin Fisher invited coach Blair to Warren County to work with the high school and middle school volleyball teams.Blair brings with him over 20 years of coaching experience. Blair spent 15 years coaching at Ole Miss before taking the head coaching job at Tech seven years ago.During his tenure at Tennessee Tech, Blair led the Golden Eagles to their second OVC championship in school history. Blair was an All-SEC performer at the University of Tennessee as a player.Coach Fisher is happy to have Blair’s expertise as his team works toward the beginning of the regular season.“We are very fortunate to have a coach the caliber of John Blair to come work with our players,” said Fisher. ”He gives the players reinforcement of concepts they’ve already been taught, but it gives me and the players new information and a different perspective of how to handle the offense and defense.”For the six seniors on the Lady Pioneers, it is the fourth year working with coach Blair during the summer.
