SENIORS MERRICK GESSLER and Devin Flaherty are joined by their team as they sign to play on Randolph Macon’s first ever men’s volleyball team.

Randolph Macon College is set to begin its first season of boys volleyball with three Falcons joining the team. Seniors Devin Flaherty, Scotty Carter, and Merrick Gessler recently signed with the Yellow Jackets.

According to Assistant Coach Elly Clark, Randolph-Macon scout Jared Horrigan was looking to begin a male volleyball team at the college and began visiting various teams’ practices at the beginning of the season.  Apparently, Horrigan liked what he saw from the Falcons and the coaches because he continued his visits to the school, extending several invitations to their players.

Head Boys Volleyball Coach Mrs. Gero and Clark have only coached the boys team for two years, already sending many of their players on to the collegiate level, including one of the top volleyball recruits in the nation, alumnus Brett Wildman. Given their amazing, yet still extremely young resume, it wouldn’t be far-fetched to tie Randolph-Macon’s future success to the way Gero and Clark coach their players.

Senior setter Devin Flaherty is an extremely talented multi-sport athlete, but has decided to set his sights on college volleyball. Flaherty attributes much of his success to coaches Gero and Clark.

“Gero was a setter in college like me, so she taught me a lot about the play of the position. Both coaches always give me feedback on my play to make sure I can be the best player I can be,” Flaherty said.

And, although Flaherty is excited to begin a new chapter in his life, as well as a new volleyball career, he does feel a bit nervous.

“It’s going to be tough playing with a whole new group of guys, but I am looking forward to playing at the next level,” Flaherty said.
