High school volleyball: Hurricane High volleyball team making a difference

"If 100,000 people saw this, passed it on to a friend, and donated a dollar, that would help the family so much," he added. "And also, if people saw this and looked at their driver's license and said, 'I should be an organ donor,' that would be huge. The family donated Mia's organs. Now, there are families elsewhere that get the gift of life because of this little girl."

The coach added that while he had been a part of a championship team in 2008, what he learned and the experiences he had this season with his sixth-place team were far better and more meaningful.

"I couldn't be prouder of these kids," he said. "It's one of those things that is a great life lesson for us and for our girls. They learned so much more than volleyball."
