VYPE dropped by North Shore today to check out the defending state champs and their offseason work outs.

It was staggering.

Coach Jon Kay and his staff have a tremendous attention to detail from game-day prep to speed and strength. It's not only the volume of athletes, but size of these kids.

What stood out…

Class of 2020 OL Damion George is in great shape at 6-foot-7 and over 300 pounds. He's more confident. He's coming out of his shell and he's wearing the Crimson Tide "A" proudly. Complimenting on the offensive line is Kansas move-in Jaeden Roberts, who has dozens of offers as an incoming junior. He is massive and goes hard.

LB Corey Flagg was in a boot and not able to participate, while QB Dematrius Davis looks even more explosive running and throwing. He looks huge.

National recruit Zachary Evans was not on hand, but in the classroom taking classes to graduate early. Coaches have been raving about his summer.

Super WR Shadrach Banks is bigger and faster. He's going to be even harder to bring down in 2019.

Julia Faseler has seen it all on the volleyball court.

The Second Baptist School senior has been digging volleyballs at an elite level since middle school. She has seen the speed and power of the Class 6A game when she played varsity at state-ranked Pearland Dawson.

The libero moved to Second Baptist School entering her junior season and hit the ground running.

"I really wanted to get to a Christian-based school where the bible is implemented in what we do on and off the court," she said. "It's been a great experience for me personally. I wouldn't change a thing.

"Coach (Sue) Berg has been amazing," she said. "She's one-of-a-kind and is a tremendous motivator. I love playing for her."

Now a senior, Faseler has taken the baton as a team leader for a young team.

"It's been so fun this season," she said. "I've made so many friends here and have grown really close on the court. I've also learned so much on how to effectively lead, which is a great life skill.

"I've played defense my entire career and I love libero so I can control what we are doing on the back row."
